Okla. senator says US-Russian treaty faces battle

LAWTON, Okla. (AP) - U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe said a treaty signed
by President Barack Obama and Russian leader Dmitry Medvedev to
limit nuclear weapons faces a hard battle in the Senate, "and I'll
lead the opposition to it."
Inhofe, R-Okla., visited Lawton Friday for a dedication of a new
facility at nearby Fort Sill.
He said after the ceremony that it will be difficult for Obama
to muster the 67 votes needed to ratify the treaty, which shrinks
the U.S. and Russian nuclear warhead limit by about a third, to
1,550.
Inhofe said opposition would come from Democrats as well as
Republicans, though he said some "mushy Republicans" may support
it.
