KNWA -- Supporters of the private option only managed to get 71 votes on the board today, but they may be closer to that elusive 75th vote needed, according to a tweet shortly after the vote by House Minority Leader Greg Leding (D-Fayetteville).

"The official tally might have been 71, but two ayes were out of the chamber. We're within two now. #arleg," tweeted Leding.

We caught up with fellow State Representative Charlie Collins (R-Fayetteville) as he made his way back into Northwest Arkansas from Little Rock, and he agrees with Leding tweet.
