Heinrich Statement On Israeli Prime Minister’s Speech To A Joint Session Of Congress Next Week

WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Senator Martin Heinrich (D-N.M.) made the following statement on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's speech to a joint session of Congress next week:

“I am always happy to listen to what Prime Minister Netanyahu has to say. I intend to watch his speech about Iran from my office, but I have strong objections to using the floor of the United State Congress as a stage for his election campaign--or anyone's for that matter. The U.S.-Israeli alliance is too important to be politically exploited just days before Israeli voters go to the polls.”
