WASHINGTON — Four Democratic senators announced on Tuesday that they would back President Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran, apparently securing enough votes so that Mr. Obama will not be forced to veto a Republican resolution disapproving of the accord.
The White House, which had worked aggressively with Congressional Democrats to build support for the agreement, had been hoping to avoid the diplomatic embarrassment of Mr. Obama being forced to use his veto to defeat a disapproval resolution.
