U.S. Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) and Rep. Jim Himes (D-4th) joined the Wilton Kiwanis Club on Wednesday, Aug. 26, at its regular Wednesday lunch at the Tompkins pavilion in Kiwanis Park on Danbury Road.
They did more than eat; each gave a speech about the current state of national foreign affairs and fielded questions from those in attendance.
One of the main points addressed by both Murphy and Himes was the Iran nuclear deal, on which Congress will vote in September.
Himes said he supports the deal because the Iranian nuclear program is gaining speed in disregard of U.S.-imposed sanctions.
“This agreement offers us something that we have never had before, which is the possibility of a 15-year period in which we don’t have to worry about being surprised by an Iranian nuclear test,” he said.
