WASHINGTON - Democratic US Senator Bob Casey said on Tuesday he would support the nuclear deal with Iran, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer.

"I believe that this is better for our security and better for Israel's security, without a doubt, short term and long term," the Pennsylvania senator told the newspaper.

Casey became the 32nd US senator, including 30 Democrats and two independents who vote with Democrats, to support the deal, increasing the odds that President Barack Obama will muster enough support for the agreement to ensure it will survive congressional review.
