(AP) From the South to the heartland, the once-solid wall of Republican resistance to President Barack Obama's health care law is cracking.


Ahead of a federal deadline Friday for states to declare their intentions, Associated Press reporters interviewed governors and state officials around the country.


AP found surprising openness to the overhaul in some cases, continued opposition in others and a widespread, urgent desire for answers on key unresolved details.


Republican-led New Mexico and Mississippi are going ahead with new state insurance markets under the law.


Iowa and Ohio are considering partnerships with Washington.


And Florida Gov. Rick Scott, a staunch opponent of what Republicans dismiss as Obamacare now says he wants to get to yes.


Eventually some 30 million uninsured people are expected to gain coverage through the law.
