“Without this agreement, this broad international coalition would likely fall apart, while still granting Iran increased financial flexibility from relaxed sanctions. I do not believe U.S. sanctions alone — without the support of our allies — are a strong enough deterrent.

Republican Party Chairman Chris Vance is Washington state's Karl Rove: He is a long-time Republican insider and partisan operative who has spent his career cheerleading for failed Republican politicians like George W. Bush and conservative policies that hurt Washington state families and seniors. If Republicans think they can beat a Senator who fights for Washington state middle-class priorities and delivers bipartisan results with a partisan Republican Party Chairman like Chris Vance, they are going to have a long, painful road to Election Day.
