Over 100 House members sign letter supporting U.S. diplomacy with Iran

Laura Rozen reports: Some 118 House members have signed onto a bipartisan letter calling on President Obama to try to advance opportunities for a diplomatic resolution with Iran in the wake of the election of Hassan Rouhani last month.

The letter, being circulated by Representatives David Price (D-North Carolina) and Charles Dent (R-Pennsylvania), is the biggest ever pro-Iran diplomacy letter from the Hill, those supporting the initiative said.

A spokesperson for Rep. Price’s office said the letter would close for signatures Thursday night and he expected it to be sent to the White House on Friday. It had 118 signatures as of Thursday afternoon, he said, 14 of them Republican.
