Charlotte – The Democratic National Convention Committee (DNCC) today announced that convention programming, originally planned for Bank of America Stadium on Thursday, September 6, would be moved to Time Warner Cable Arena, the site of the first two days of the 2012 Democratic National Convention, due to severe weather forecasts. The DNCC also announced that President Barack Obama will address community credential holders in a conference call on Thursday. Call information will be emailed directly to community credential-holders.
As of now, the weather forecast is calling for a 40% chance of rain for Charlotte. Anyone familiar with the area knows that the chance of afternoon or evening thunderstorms is almost always present on any given summer day in the Mid-Atlantic and the South.
Most believe that the true reason is that even with busing in churches and anyone else interested, the Democrats were unable to fill the stadium. The lack of interest in Obama this time is astonishing.
Let’s hope they can fine 20,000 people to fill the much smaller venue.
