Robert Patrick Casey Sr. (January 9, 1932 – May 30, 2000) was an American lawyer and politician from Pennsylvania. A member of the Democratic Party, he served as the 42nd Governor of Pennsylvania from 1987-95. He previously served as a state senator (1963–68) and Auditor General of Pennsylvania (1969–77). Casey was best known for leading the pro-life wing of the Democratic Party, taking the lead in fighting Planned Parenthood v. Casey, a major Supreme Court case that upheld almost all the prohibitions on abortion that Casey signed into law. He championed unions, believed in government as a beneficent force, and supported gun rights. His son, Bob Casey Jr., has also served as Auditor General. He went on to serve as Pennsylvania Treasurer and is the senior United States Senator from Pennsylvania, most recently re-elected for a third six-year term in 2018.
