Video: Daschle Pushes for New START Ratification

He noted that seven current GOP senators approved of President Reagan’s original START treaty but have not voiced support for New START — and with Sen. Joe Lieberman’s (I-Conn.) backing, their yes votes would give the treaty the 67 votes needed to pass.
