Currently 31 senators have backed the Iran deal. The president will need 34 senators to support it and uphold his veto of a resolution of disapproval. Cardin, the ranking member of the Foreign Relations Committee, is one of roughly a dozen undecided Democrats crucial to getting the deal across the finish line.
Sen. Chris Coons (D-Del.), also a member of the Foreign Relations Committee, will announce his decision on Tuesday, while Sen. Bob Casey Jr. (D-Pa.) is expected to announce his decision this week.
