(WASHINGTON) -- President Obama’s Thursday speech at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C., has been moved indoors due to weather concerns.
“We have been monitoring weather forecasts closely and several reports predict thunderstorms in the area,” said Democratic National Convention Committee CEO Steve Kerrigan, “therefore we have decided to move Thursday's proceedings to Time Warner Cable Arena to ensure the safety and security of our delegates and convention guests.”
The president was to deliver his speech at Bank of America Stadium on Thursday. The first two days of the convention are being held at the Time Warner Cable Arena.
Obama will hold a conference call Thursday afternoon with those who planned to attend the stadium speech.
