Schultz: ‘Legitimate Cause for Concern’ With Iran Nuclear Deal

DNC chair undecided on support for agreement

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D., Fla.) said Monday that there is a legitimate cause for concern about the Iran nuclear agreement.

Schultz, who is also chair of the Democratic National Committee, told CNN's Wolf Blitzer she is in the middle of reviewing the Iran nuclear deal and has yet to reach a conclusion on it. Schultz joins other prominent Democrats that are still undecided on the Iran nuclear deal.

"I'm in the middle of really reviewing it and looking at all the moving parts to the Iran deal," Schultz said. "I'll reach a conclusion on what I’m going to do with my vote once I feel like I’ve been able to thoroughly review the whole deal."

Schultz, who rarely opposes President Obama, said the deal has merits but also warrants worry.

"There’s a lot of merit to the deal but there's also a legitimate cause for concern and I think this is a decision that no member of Congress should make lightly," Schultz said. "As a pro-Israel legislator myself, it's very important to get this right."
