The GOP effort to repeal Obamacare isn’t dead – despite the lack of support from key Senators, White House legislative affairs director Marc Short said Sunday.

In an interview on "Fox News Sunday," Short said the White House is still "trying to win over the support of the last couple senators to get there."

"No, Chris, it’s not dead," he insisted, adding: "We need to make sure that those last couple Republicans we win over."

Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., has already said he won’t vote for the bill being pushed by fellow Republican Sens. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Bill Cassidy of Louisiana.

But Short said he hopes Republicans can get the support of Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky. Meanwhile, Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, hasn’t made it known how she’ll vote, and Maine’s GOP Sen. Susan Collins said Sunday she was leaning toward a "no."
