Democrublicans: Robert Casey

Likely Pennsylvanian "Democratic" Senate candidate Robert "Casey, who supports laws banning discrimination based on sexual orientation, said he provides a contrast to the conservative Santorum, the No. 3 Senate Republican who has frequently earned the ire of gay-rights groups for his opposition to gay marriage. [...] Casey also opposes gay marriage but favors allowing same-sex couples to join in civil unions that could provide many of the same benefits as marriage. [...] Like Santorum, however, Casey is opposed to abortion and supported the nominations of John Roberts and Samuel Alito to the Supreme Court." (story)

Let's just remember: Samuel Alito, amongst other things, decided it was perfectly OK to strip-search a ten-year old child. So that's quite the contrast that PA's voters will get to vote on there.
