From the White House to Capitol Hill, anticipation was mounting Tuesday over Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s address to Congress which he plans to use to make his case against a pending nuclear deal with Iran.
The prime minister, who previewed his speech a day earlier during remarks to the pro-Israel lobby, warns that the potential agreement would leave his country at risk. His address is his highest-profile bid yet to oppose the talks, and has led to a political firestorm in Washington.
Dozens of Democrats plan to boycott Netanyahu’s address. But House Speaker John Boehner’s office, which invited the Israeli leader to give the address, says the demand for tickets is still “unprecedented, and has far outweighed their availability.”
Demand for tickets remains so high that both the House and Senate have set up alternative viewing locations, according to Boehner’s office.
