PHOENIX (AP) — Arizona Congressman Harry Mitchell, one of the final holdouts on the health care reform bill, announced Friday that he'll support the package.

Mitchell cited proposed fixes for the Senate-passed legislation that would help Arizona. The Democrat represents a Republican-leaning suburban congressional district centered on Scottsdale and Tempe.

All five of Arizona's House Democrats have announced they either will vote for the bill or are leaning toward doing so. All three of the state's House Republicans will vote against it. The vote on the health care reform bill is expected Sunday.
