Concord - The New Hampshire Republican State Committee today blasted Congresswoman Annie Kuster's decision to support President Obama's deal with Iran and called on likely-Senate candidate Maggie Hassan to denounce it.
"Once again, Congresswoman Annie Kuster has decided to blindly support President Obama's disastrous foreign policy agenda that has diminished American's standing on the global stage and threatened our national security. President Obama's reckless deal will not only undermine our strong alliance with Israel, it will allow the Iranian regime to develop a nuclear weapon in the future. As a likely candidate for the United States Senate, Governor Maggie Hassan has repeatedly dodged questions about the Obama Administration's reckless Iran agenda. Granite Staters have a right to know if likely Senate candidate Hassan is willing to march in lock step with President Obama as he pushes irresponsible foreign policies that will make our world a more dangerous place to live."
In July, Governor Hassan weighed in on the Iran deal and offered a "non-committal" response according to WMUR-TV.
In March, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addressed Congress and vigorously denounced President Obama's proposed deal with Iran. The Prime Minister has called the agreement a "historic mistake for the world."
