Speaking in nearby McLean Tuesday night, Virginia U.S. Senator Tim Kaine told the News-Press that at this stage he’s not sure that both houses of Congress will reject the Iran treaty and that therefore President Obama may not have anything to veto. He said that he’s talked to a number of GOP senators who privately support the treaty but are not yet willing to buck their party publicly. Kaine said that from his point of view, there is no doubt that the treaty will make security in the Middle East “dramatically better” for at least the first 15 years.
Kaine was in McLean speaking at a fundraiser in a private home for Braddock District candidate for the Fairfax Board of Supervisors, Janet Oleszek.
