CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- Clergy are doing more than leading prayers at the Democratic National Convention.
A leading bishop of the African Methodist Episcopal Church is helping lead President Barack Obama's re-election campaign.
Bishop Vashti McKenzie told convention delegates that Democrats believe Americans are entitled to quality education and health care "regardless of gender, race, creed or sexual orientation."
McKenzie, the first woman elected as a bishop in the AME church, said Democrats are "the party of inclusion."
