Schwartz to Speak at DNC

U.S. Rep. Allyson Schwartz of Pennsylvania's 13th District is scheduled to speak to next week's Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C.

Schwartz will join several female House colleagues in discussiong President Obama's record. No word on what she'll say but here's a hint: There's a giant gender gap benefitting the Democratic Party int he presidential race, so expect something on health care, perhaps. Schwartz is an expert lawmaker on the subject and responsible for some aspects of the Affordable Care Act.

Joining her will be Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, California and Reps. Ros DeLauro of Connecticut; Carolyn Mahoney of New York; Nydia Valesquez of New York, Gwen Moore of Wisconsin; and Donna Edwards of Maryland. Two Democratic congressional candidates, Joyce Beatty of Ohio and Tusi Gabbard of Hawaii, will also speak.
