White House Has Enough Votes To Ratify START Treaty
The White House has the 67 votes needed to ratify the START Treaty, racking up another win. With the support of Lamar Alexander (pictured) the Republican votes are there. The LA Times agrees it is a big win for President Obama.
If he wins the support of at least two-thirds of the Senate for the New START agreement in a vote that may come as early as Tuesday, President Obama could build on the victory as he turns to a long list of foreign policy challenges — including Afghanistan, Iran, North Korea and his broader plans to limit nuclear weapons.
