Kate Michelman, former president of NARAL, considering challenging Casey

According to the Washington Times, the former president of NARAL is considering challenging Casey in his bid to unseat Santorum. This could get interesting, as Casey's pro-life views consider to anger PA liberals, who would most likely back Michelman and would divide not only PA Dems, but national ones too, especially the staunch pro-aborts...

Mr. Casey's pro-life position has angered pro-choice Democratic activists
and could bring into the race Kate Michelman, former president of NARAL
Pro-Choice America. Should that happen, it would split the Democrats and turn
the November election into a competitive contest, independent polls indicate.
"If there were a third-party candidate on the ballot who
is pro-choice, that candidate could draw heavily from Casey backers among
liberal Democrats, enough to make it a close race," said Clay F. Richards,
assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute, whose surveys
show that Mr. Casey is vulnerable on the abortion issue with pro-choice
Democrats. "If Michelman gets in, I think you would see
Casey's support drop," Mr. Richards said.


This could get interesting...
