Rep. Eric Swalwell with Israeli P.M. Benjamin
Netanyahu last year.
Honda said last week that he disagreed with Netanyahu's opposition to ongoing nuclear disarmament talks between the U.S. and Iran, among other reasons. Honda, though, attended the speech, as did Rep. Eric Swalwell.
Three members of the Bay Area congressional delegation, Reps. Barbara Lee, Jerry McNerney and Zoe Lofgren, were among the 56 members of the House and 9 members of the U.S. Senate who did not attend Netanyahu's address which criticized the Obama administration's stance toward nuclear arms negotiations with Iran.
Neither Honda or Swalwell have made any public comments since the speech earlier today. However, Lee weighed-in with a tweet from her campaign Twitter account.
Now is not the time to give up on peace with #Iran.
