Republican Leader Says No To Arms Treaty

Obama, Medvedev sign START treaty on nuclear weapons

 WASHINGTON (AP) - The Senate's Republican leader said Sunday he would oppose a nuclear arms treaty with Russia, complicating President Barack Obama's drive to secure a foreign policy victory in the final days of the post election Congress. Senior Democrats still expressed confidence the Senate would ratify the accord and pushed for a showdown vote early this week.

Republican Lindsey Graham of South Carolina told CBS television's Face the Nation program that if the Obama administration wants to ratify the accord, it should think about starting over during the next session of Congress in January.
