WASHINGTON (AP) -- Democratic officials say Sen. Bob Casey of Pennsylvania, who opposes abortion rights, will be a featured speaker at the party's national convention.
Casey was set to speak during the convention's Tuesday night session.
Casey is the son of the late Pennsylvania Gov. Robert P. Casey, who was not given a marquee speaking spot at the 1992 convention because of his anti-abortion views.
Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama supports abortion rights. Casey endorsed Obama over Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton and campaigned with Obama throughout Pennsylvania.
