(CNN) - John McCain suggested Wednesday he has not decided whether he will vote for the economic bailout, contradicting Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's comments Tuesday night indicating the Arizona senator would definitely support the plan.
"I did not say that," McCain told reporters flatly at an economic roundtable in New York when asked about Reid's comments
Reid, who had challenged McCain to take a position on the bill, said Wednesday he had been told the Arizona senator would support the $700 billion proposal.
“I got some good news in the last hour or so … it appears that Sen. McCain is going to come out for this,” he said, according to The Hill.
Barack Obama has also not said whether he will support the bailout package.
