Walker, Christie, Kasich, Jindal to Keep State Sanctions on Iran

GOP presidential candidates Scott Walker, Chris Christie, John Kasich, Bobby Jindal join 11 other Republican governors in sending letter to President Obama opposing Iran agreement and saying they don’t plan to lift state-level sanctions on Iran.

  • “Iran is a state sponsor of terrorism, and it should not be permitted any pathway toward obtaining a nuclear weapon, now or ever”
  • “These state-level sanctions are critically important and must be maintained”
  • House Speaker John Boehner in separate statement says “strongly” supports governors’ moves; “I urge all governors to closely review the facts of the agreement, and join us in standing strong against the world’s largest state-sponsor of terror”
