Top 4 Political Stories of the Day

Prominent Republicans are leaping to New Jersey GOP Gov. Chris Christie's defense, insisting that a traffic scandal won't ruin his chances of running for president. New Jersey Democrats also took to the Sunday talk shows to ask how a hands-on manager like Christie wouldn't have known about a plan by a top aide to close lanes to the George Washington Bridge. Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus (ryns PREE'-bus) says primary voters could look past the scandal because Christie apologized for his staff's behavior and punished those responsible. Democratic Mayor Mark Sokolich (SAHK'-oh-lich) says he wants to believe Christie had no hand in bringing his town of Fort Lee to a standstill but is having a tough time buying it. President Barack Obama said the United States and other nations would begin to give Iran "modest relief" on economic sanctions as long as Iran lives up to its end of an agreement reached on Sunday to start implementing a nuclear deal. Obama said he would veto any new sanctions passed by the U.S. Congress during talks on a long-term deal with Iran, but said the United States would be ready to increase its sanctions if Iran fails to abide by the agreement. Prime Minister Manmohan Singh Sunday called up Sheikh Hasina to congratulate her on being sworn in as the Bangladesh prime minister for the third time. Manmohan Singh called her up Sunday evening to convey his good wishes and also "wished her and the people of Bangladesh all success in the endeavour to strengthen democratic institutions in Bangladesh", said a statement. The prime minister "conveyed that India attaches the highest importance to its relationship with Bangladesh and expressed the hope that bilateral cooperation will be further broadened and strengthened in the coming months". Egyptians vote this week for the first time since Mohamed Mursi's downfall in a constitutional referendum that will likely give a final push to a presidential bid by the man who deposed him, army chief General Abdel Fattah al-Sisi. Approval of the rewritten constitution appears a foregone conclusion: Mursi's now outlawed Muslim Brotherhood is urging a boycott rather than a 'no' vote, while many Egyptians who backed his overthrow are expected to vote 'yes' in a show of support for the army-backed order that has replaced Islamist rule.
