WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Democratic Senator Michael Bennet said on Friday he will support the nuclear deal with Iran, becoming the 38th senator backing the agreement.

“Our primary objectives are to prevent Iran from having a nuclear weapon, make sure Israel is safe and, if possible, avoid another war in the Middle East,” the Colorado lawmaker said in a statement that was released first to the Denver Post. “This agreement represents a flawed, but important step to accomplish those goals.”
