DENVER (AP) -- Former Vice Pesident Al Gore, Virginia Gov. Tim Kaine and Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin are among the speakers lined up for Thursday night's finale of the Democratic National Convention.

Barack Obama will accept the nomination before an estimated 75,000 people at the Denver Broncos' football stadium that night.

Party officials said Tuesday that others lined up to speak ahead of Obama include Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean and six Coloradans: Gov. Bill Ritter, Sen. Ken Salazar and Reps. Diana DeGette, Ed Perlmutter, John Salazar and Mark Udall. Udall is running for the Senate.
