Despite Pennsylvania U.S. Senator Bob Casey’s self-described “pro-life” views, he’s been able to form alliances with progressives who support abortion rights. On this episode, we talk with WHYY reporter Dave Davies to examine the tightrope act Casey walks in garnering political support as a Democrat while trying to stay true to his ideals.
Editor’s note: An earlier version of this episode incorrectly identified former Pennsylvania US Senator Rick Santorum as Evangelical. He is Catholic.
