In March, 47 Republican senators wrote directly to the ayatollah of Iran urging him to break off diplomatic negotiations with President Obama.1
Today President Obama announced a historic agreement to keep Iran from getting a nuclear bomb—and some of those same senators—who became known as the "47 traitors"—denounced it this morning before they even read it.2
The deal isn't final until Congress reviews it, and if we're going to stop pro-war Republicans from blocking this deal, we need to have all hands on deck. Will you chip in $3 today?
- A 60-day on-the-ground effort in the eight critical states with undecided Senate Democrats who will likely make the difference. Hawkish Senate Democrats made the Iraq War possible by voting for authorization—we can't let that happen again.
- Round-the-clock rapid-response team. We'll have our media, political, and field teams ready with hard hitting ads and grassroots actions.
- Senate whip count. We'll track where every senator stands on the deal—and mobilize rapid-response grassroots pressure wherever its needed.
Currently, Iran could build a nuclear bomb within just two to three months if they decided to go to war. This deal extends that time to at least a year. In exchange, sanctions against Iran will be lifted.3
If Iran tries to cheat, we'll know. International inspectors will be able to access and monitor Iran's entire nuclear program.
And here's the bottom line: If Iran's nuclear ambitions are not checked, war is becoming increasingly inevitable. This deal is our best chance to prevent another disastrous war in the Middle East.
We have just 60 days to stop the so-called "47 traitors" and hawkish Democrats from killing this deal. Can you chip in $3 to help make sure that doesn't happen?
Thanks for all you do.
