Potential Presidential Candidates on New START



Text  



As the New START debate heats up and heads to an end-game very soon in the Senate, we’re asking potential Republican presidential candidates two simple questions: 1) Do you support President Obama’s effort to bring the New START treaty to a vote during the lame-duck session? 2) Whenever the treaty does come to a vote, would you vote to ratify it? For the sake of clarity, we’re asking for simple one word answers and we’re putting it in chart form. Below is what we have so far. Answers will be added as we get them. Also, we’ll separately publish anything the candidates want to say by way of elaboration.

This is the chart:
