Obama urges Senate Dems to put off Iran sanctions

WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama is asking Senate Democrats to hold off on new sanctions against Iran and to support a minimum wage hike.

Obama met privately Wednesday evening with Democratic senators at the White House.

He says any new sanctions against Iran could derail delicate nuclear talks.

A six-month deal between Iran and world powers takes effect next week, but prominent senators in both parties have balked at the deal and want even tougher sanctions.
