Senate Republicans should abandon efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act and try to reach a bipartisan deal instead, a group of 10 Democrat and Republican governors said in a letter to Senate leaders.

Only bipartisan efforts "can achieve true, lasting reforms" said the letter addressed to addressed to Senate leaders, Mitch McConnell, R-Kentucky, and Chuck Schumer, D-New York.

It was signed by Democrats John Hickenlooper of Colorado, Steve Bullock of Montana, Terry McAuliffe of Virginia, John Bel Edwards of Louisiana, Tom Wolf of Pennsylvania, and Republicans John Kasich of Ohio, Bill Walker of Alaska, Brian Sandoval of Nevada, Phil Scott of Vermont and Charlie Baker of Massachusetts, CBS News reported.
