DENVER (AP) - Former Senator Gary Hart thinks Colorado’s current senior senator will soon back the Iran deal.

Hart says he and another former Colorado senator, Tim Wirth, have discussed July’s Iran nuclear deal with Sen. Michael Bennet in recent weeks. Bennet is one of the few Democratic senators who haven’t taken a position on the agreement.

On Wednesday, President Obama gained support from enough Democratic senators to uphold a possible veto of Republican legislation that would annul the deal. Liberals are still pressing Democrats like Bennet, who is up for re-election next year. Hart spoke at a press conference with veterans who back the deal.

Bennet has also come under pressure to vote no. Another veterans group is scheduled to hold a press conference later Tuesday urging him to reject the deal.
