Ben Cardin Says Negotiators 'Got an Awful Lot' in Iran Nuclear Talks

Senator Ben Cardin, the top Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said on Thursday he has not yet decided how he would vote on the nuclear agreement with Iran but said he felt U.S. negotiators had made significant progress.

“Our negotiators got an awful lot, particularly on the nuclear front,” Cardin said at a hearing the committee held as Congress begins a 60-day period, which ends Sept. 17, to approve of the deal, reject it or do nothing.

Cardin is considered one of the key votes on the deal in the U.S. Senate.
