NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Tennessee U.S. Sens. Lamar Alexander and Bob Corker both supported the new arms control treaty.
Alexander, the Senate's No. 3 Republican, said Tuesday on the Senate floor that Americans would be safer and more secure with the treaty than without. He said he received assurances from President Barack Obama, a Democrat.
Corker, a Republican, said he firmly believes that "signing this treaty, that ratifying this treaty, and that all the things that we've done over the course of time as a result of this treaty are in our country's national interest."
