Here's your round-up of five stories to follow today:
1. Casey backs gay marriage: Pennsylvania Sen. Bob Casey has become the latest Democrat to shift his views on same-sex marriage. "If two people of the same sex fell in love and want to marry, why would our government stand in their way," Casey said in a statement. Casey is largely moderate on social issues and is a pro-life Catholic. The reverse in his position on gay marriage comes after the U.S. Supreme Court heard two gay-marriage cases last week and other high-profile Democrats have announced that they have changed their views on the issue.
