WASHINGTON (AP) -- Speaker John Boehner and other top House Republican leaders intend to vote for the bipartisan agreement worked out in the Senate to avoid a financial default and reopen the government.

Officials said Wednesday that the leaders made their intentions clear at a closed-door meeting of rank and file Republicans.

Boehner in a statement said the House, quote, "fought with everything" it had to persuade President Barack Obama to engage in bipartisan negotiations on the country's debt and the 3-year-old health care law. He vowed that the fight will continue.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to publicly discuss the internal deliberations.
