Chris Christie to urge Sen. Cory Booker to oppose Iran deal

Posted: Updated:

Gov. Chris Christie wants New Jersey's junior U.S. senator to oppose the Iran deal.



Christie on Tuesday at Rutgers University's Chabad House urged Democrat Cory Booker and the state's congressional delegation to oppose the deal, which is aimed at curbing Iran's nuclear weapons development.



Christie said the delegation should stand united as it did after Superstorm Sandy against this deal.



Christie appeared alongside World Values Network founder Rabbi Shmuley Boteach and other Jewish leaders. Boteach and Booker are close friends.



Christie has hammered the deal as he campaigns for the Republican nomination for president.



He made foreign policy a centerpiece of his campaign, which has so far failed to gain traction with voters.



Booker has yet to announce a position on the deal.
