Congresswoman Allyson Schwartz (D-13) will address the Democratic National Convention tonight, after being selected to the convention's speaker list.
In an e-mail to supporters, Rep. Schwartz said that she will speak during the 7 pm hour. The address will be nationally broadcast live on C-SPAN, and will also be viewable online through c-span.com's live streaming coverage.
Although there is no word on what Rep. Schwartz plans to say, the fourth-term congresswoman is part of a lineup of female politicians that includes minority leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).
Schwartz represents voters in Abington, Upper Dublin, Lansdale, Montgomery, Springfield, Plymouth, Whitemarsh, Conshohocken, Ambler, Whitpain, Lower Merion, and Upper and Lower Moreland townships as part of the 13th district.
She faces a challenge from Republican Joe Rooney this fall.
