Kuster Announces Support For Iran Nuclear Deal

Allegra Boverman

New Hampshire Congresswoman Ann McLane Kuster says she’ll vote in support of the proposed Iran nuclear deal.

In a statement, Kuster says after carefully reviewing the deal, she believes it’s "the best option we have to prevent a nuclear-armed Iran."

The White House this week secured the support it needed in Congress to guarantee the deal will pass.

Moving forward, Kuster says Congress must ensure military and intelligence agencies have the resources they need to monitor Iran’s actions.

New Hampshire’s Congressional delegation is split on the deal, with the state’s two Democrats – Kuster and Sen. Jeanne Shaheen – now backing the agreement.

Sen. Kelly Ayotte says she’ll vote against it.

Republican Congressman Frank Guinta has been highly critical of the deal, though has not yet confirmed how he plans to vote.
