Obama Speech Moved Indoors on Account of Rain

President will accept nomination at Time Warner Cable Arena not Bank of America Stadium


Democratic convention officials on Wednesday moved U.S. President Barack Obama's acceptance speech inside on Thursday because of severe weather forecasts, canceling plans to hold it in a 74,000-seat outdoor football stadium.

The address will now be in the approximately 20,000-seat Time Warner Cable Arena, which has housed the first two nights of the convention.
