Most poliican’s think about keeping their jobs, First…Second and Third…
Senator Chuck Schumer is no different….
Mr. Schumer’s announcement comes as Representative Nancy Pelosi of California, the House minority leader, labors to build a firewall in the House in support of the Iran deal, which has been denounced by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel. At six meetings in recent weeks, Ms. Pelosi has assembled an informal team of Democrats determined to win over the 146 House Democrats needed to uphold a veto.
But Ms. Pelosi’s team has had its eye on Mr. Schumer, conceded Representative Jan Schakowsky, Democrat of Illinois and one of Ms. Pelosi’s deputies on the Iran deal.
“Anybody whipping has never put Schumer in the ‘yes’ column,” she said Thursday. “But the calculation still is we’ll have the votes” even without him…..
The other New York Senator Gillibrand has come out FOR the deal…..
