FYI – Progressive activism group CREDO Action, which has more than 70,000 members in Michigan and more than 3.8 million members nationwide, released the statement below in response to Sen. Stabenow’s statement today in support of the Iran nuclear deal:

We applaud Senator Stabenow for announcing her public support for the Iran nuclear deal,” said Zack Malitz, campaign manager at CREDO Action. “Now that Senator Stabenow has done the right thing, all eyes are on her junior colleague Sen. Peters. Progressives want to know whether he will vote for peace or vote for war.”

Democrats who insist that rejecting the deal will lead to a better deal are delusional. They shouldn’t allow Republicans hell bent on bombing Iran to dupe them into providing the votes needed to destroy the international sanctions regime and put our country on the path to war,” Malitz continued. “We urge Sen. Peters and every other Democrat to follow Sen. Stabenow in publicly backing this historic Iran peace deal now.

PLEASE NOTE: 6,753 CREDO activists in Michigan have signed a petition at StopWarWithIran.com telling Democrats in Congress to support the deal.
