Top US senator: No nuclear treaty vote before elections


Recommended Posts


The US Senate should put off its final vote on a landmark nuclear arms control treaty until after November legislative elections, the senior US lawmaker leading the ratification effort said Tuesday.

"I think that to push it in the next week or two would be a mistake given the election," said Senate Foreign Relations Committee chairman John Kerry, whose panel was set to vote on the pact on Thursday.

"Let's just get it out of the committee and hopefully set it up to do without any politics, without any election atmospherics, as a matter of national security when we come back in the lame duck," said the Democrat, referring to the legislative session after the elections.
