ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) U.S. Vice President Mike Pence is promising to repeal and replace Obamacare 'before the summer is out.' Speaking in Lexington, Kentucky, Pence praised Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's decision to keep the Senate in session for the first two weeks of August to work on the Republican bill. Senate Republican leaders are expected to unveil a new version of their legislation on Thursday, amid continued feuding among lawmakers over what should go in the bill and uncertainty over its prospects. With his reputation as a skillful strategist hanging in the balance, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell will present the revised bill in a bid to unite disparate Republican factions and deliver on his party's signature issue in the 2016 elections. He is aiming for a vote next week.
