Arizona Sen. John McCain joined a failed Democratic attempt on Wednesday to bar oil drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska.

McCain joined six other moderate Republicans and most Democrats in looking to stop proposed ANWR drilling.

But the effort fell short by one vote and language allowing for drilling in the Alaskan refuge remains in a larger federal bill.
