As Congress returns to Washington after Labor Day, the vote on the Iran nuclear deal will be its most important since the decision to go to war in Iraq in 2003. While Republicans dominated the debate in July, Democrats regained lost ground in recent weeks with a flurry of endorsements in both houses of Congress. I testified in favor of the agreement before four congressional committees, and talked with many members individually during July and August. It now appears almost certain that President Obama has the votes to prevail in Congress.
