Democrats Move President Obama’s Speech To Time Warner Cable Arena
President Obama will now give his acceptance speech at Time Warner Cable Arena Thursday night instead of Bank of America Stadium.
Due to forecasts of severe weather, organizers from the DNC decided to switch the venues because they are calling for rain and thunderstorms later on in the day.
The outdoor stadium, which is home to the Carolina Panthers, can hold upwards to 72,000 people. The DNC did give out around 65,000 credentials for the public to come in and see the Thursday night speeches, but now they won’t be allowed into Time Warner Cable Arena because it can only hold upwards of 15 – 16,000 delegates and public officials.
Vice President Joe Biden will also be giving a speech before President Obama. The president is expected to give his speech after 10 PM.
