WASHINGTON (AP) - A leading Senate Democrat says she's willing to resume efforts to find a bipartisan deal on health care.

Posted: Updated:

Washington Sen. Patty Murray made the remark after Republican Sen. John McCain said he'll oppose the GOP's last-ditch bill to repeal President Barack Obama's health care overhaul. The Arizona Republican's opposition means the GOP legislation would likely die in a Senate showdown expected next week.
 
Murray and GOP Tennessee Sen. Lamar Alexander had been working toward a bipartisan bill to shore up individual health care markets. Republicans abandoned that effort last week, as they focused instead on the separate repeal bill.
 
Murray says she's willing to keep pursuing a compromise when Republicans give up on the repeal legislation.
 
Murray says in a written statement that the two parties should be "working together to find common ground."
