Casey also said he supports passing the measure with a simple majority, but has not signed the letter.

"Senator Casey has not signed the letter, but supports what the letter calls for," said his spokesman, Larry Smar. "He has been a longtime advocate for a public option. ... He has made this known to Senate leadership as next steps are considered."

"Whether he expressed his support by signing on to the letter or in his own way, the result is the same," Smar added.
