Washington - Liberal Groups Promise To Pull Millions In Donations From Schumer And Fellow Dems Who Oppose Iran Deal
Washington, D.C. - New York state Senator Chuck Schumer (D) and fellow Democrats who have expressed opposition to President Obama’s Iran deal are already feeling the backlash, as liberal advocacy groups are now pledging to pull back some $8.3M in donations from their collective war-chests if they, in fact, vote against the agreement next month.
HUFFINGTONPOST.com (http://huff.to/1Ef3z7e) reports that within 24 hrs. of Schumer’s announcement on Thursday that he would oppose the nuclear accord, over 17,500 MoveOn members had signed the pledge to withhold donations.
With the August congressional recess currently underway, a coalition of anti-war groups—-including MoveOn—-say they will be organizing a town hall blitz nationwide aimed at encouraging members to put pressure on their elected Democratic reps to side with Obama.
Nick Berning, MoveOn’s communications director, said that there will be “substantial political consequences” for Democratic party members who vote to “take us to war” by opposing the deal.
