Obama gets Iran deal win as Senate Dems amass enough votes

Democratic Sen. Barbara Mikulski of Maryland became the crucial 34th vote in favour of the agreement.

"No deal is perfect, especially one negotiated with the Iranian regime," Mikulski said in a statement. She called the accord "the best option available to block Iran from having a nuclear bomb. For these reasons, I will vote in favor of this deal."
