Megyn Kelly to Sen. Tom Cotton: Aren’t You Just Alienating Dems on Iran?

Senator Tom Cotton tonight continued to defend the letter he drafted to the leaders of Iran––signed by him and 46 other Republican senators––on Fox News. And Megyn Kelly had some questions for him, asking Cotton if they really didn’t just alienate Democrats they might need to work with on Iran later.

Kelly said, “You may have offended the Democrats who would have come over with the Republicans if, depending on what happens with this deal, to have a stronger say in the Senate.”

Cotton insisted the main goal of the letter is to assert Congress’ role in the negotiations and to stop Iran, period. He said Obama’s trying to meddle with Congress as part of a continuing pattern of executive overreach.

Cotton and his colleagues have been getting a lot of criticism since yesterday, from President Obama to Vice President Joe Biden to Harry Reid to even some other Republicans.
