Nevada Sen. Dean Heller says he can't support the House GOP healthcare bill in its current form, leaving the measure short of the support it needs in the Senate.

Heller, who faces re-election next year, was asked if he agreed with Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval, who has expressed opposition. Heller's spokesman Mac Abrams said Friday that the senator said he can't support the bill as the House GOP has crafted it.

Heller joins Republican Sens. Susan Collins of Maine, Rand Paul of Kentucky and Mike Lee of Utah in opposing the legislation, while other Republicans, including Tom Cotton of Arkansas and Ted Cruz of Texas, have expressed deep misgivings.
