In a victory for the Obama administration, a prominent Jewish Democrat has declared his support for the Iran nuclear agreement.

Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) announced on Friday that he would vote in Congress in favor of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.

US President Barack Obama needs to muster enough support among his own party in order to prevent the legislature from gathering enough votes to override an executive veto. A Republican-controlled Congress is expected to reject the nuclear deal, though it will have a much more difficult time amassing the necessary two-thirds support needed to withstand a presidential veto.
