Senate Republican leaders took their best shot a repealing portions of Obamacare early Friday morning and failed . The legislation was voted down 49-51.

Even as the voted continued to be tallied, it became apparent the bill would be sunk as Republican Sens. Susan Collins of Maine, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and John McCain of Arizona voted no early during the balloting.

The vote was the third time in three days that Republicans failed to coalesce around a way to repeal and replace Obamacare.
