MoveOn reaction to pending opening in Democratic caucus leadership and Sen. Schumer’s position on Iran diplomacy

Sen. Charles Schumer (D-NY) has been mentioned as a potential candidate to lead the Senate Democrats but has signed on as a co-sponsor of two dangerous bills sponsored by Sens. Corker and Menendez, which would undermine diplomacy and risk putting the United States on a path to war with Iran.

Ilya Sheyman, executive director of MoveOn.org Political Action, had the following statement in response:

“Supporting reckless legislation that undermines President Obama’s diplomacy with Iran and risks a dangerous, unnecessary war in the Middle East should disqualify anyone from leading the Senate Democratic caucus. Sen. Schumer needs to withdraw his support from the Corker and Menendez legislation.”
