Carter on Continued Iran Attacks - "Where is Dick Blumenthal?"
"This is exactly why
voters are entitled to debates, and Dick Blumenthal is not entitled to
his seat in the US Senate," said Carter. "We must respond to these
continued attacks by Iran on our military or they and their allies will
only grow more emboldened."

Carter Response on Continued Iran Attacks BETHEL, CT - Republican US Senate candidate Dan Carter commented on continued provocations by Iran and Iranian backed rebels against American Navy vessels. "Iran and its allies
continue to be emboldened by the United States failure to hold them
accountable for their actions," said Carter. "They've taken American
hostages, held our sailors captive, fired shots at our vessels and now
Iranian backed rebels are firing upon Navy vessels."
"Where is Dick
Blumenthal?" asked Carter. "He's not answering questions on why he
supported the Iran nuclear deal, he's saying no comment when asked about
the US paying ransom to Iran for holding hostages, and he's certainly
not commenting on the string of attacks made by Iranian vessels firing
upon US Navy vessels."
"Politicians in Washington
like Senator Blumenthal are weakening American foreign policy by
failing to hold Iran accountable," said Carter. "Instead of ramping up
sanctions, which is what I would fight for, Senator Blumenthal voted to
give Iran, the world's foremost state sponsor of terror, $150 billion."
"There is a long list of
atrocities Iran has committed against America, our allies and it's own
people," said Carter. "Yet, Dick Blumenthal has no comment on his record
or the Obama Administration's failed policies when dealing with Iran."
