The Senate also voted on S.J. Res. 41, which says the United States and other countries have a vital interest in working together to prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons capability. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) introduced the resolution that had 82 cosponsors. It was approved on a 90-1 vote.

“We know with certainty that Iranian leaders show no signs of wanting to halt their program to develop nuclear weapons,” a co-sponsor, Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.), said. “This resolution says to the world that the United States and governments of other responsible nations have a vital mutual interest to stop Iran from nuclear weapons capability.”

Paul voted against the resolution because he said it was “a vote for preemptive war” against Iran.
