Transcript for Iran citizens vote for new president
Dr. Walensky, thank you for your time. Voters are going to the polls in Iran. Martha Raddatz is on the grounds there in Tehran. Good morning, Martha. Reporter: Good morning, Amy. We are right outside a polling place. There's been a huge push to get Iranians out to vote. The guard court saying a vote is worth more than a precision guided missile into the heart of the enemy. The eye toll I can't himself voted this morning saying it's a sin not to vote. His candidate is the one who will very likely win here. A hand picked candidate. He's a hard liner. Most of the people we spoke for today were voting for him. About 60% of the population is expected to stay home today in protest because there were not moderates on the polling places to vote for. More than 500 were disqualified completely. Now, even though he's a hard liner supports the nuclear deal president Biden is trying to it could be harder to get a tougher or longer deal out of the Iranians because of him. That's a long way off. Amy? Thank you, Martha. We turn to a landmark moment
