(USA TODAY) - President Obama won't be giving a stadium speech after all.
Officials said today his Thursday night speech is moving from Bank of America Stadium to the Time Warner Cable Arena because of weather concerns.
"We have been monitoring weather forecasts closely and several reports predict thunderstorms in the area," said Steve Kerrigan, CEO of the Democratic National Convention Committee.
"We share the disappointment of over 65,000 people who signed up for community credentials to be there with the President in person.
We encourage our community credential holders and Americans across the country to continue to come together with their friends and neighbors to watch and participate in history.
The President will speak to these credential holders on a national conference call tomorrow afternoon, and we will work with the campaign to ensure that those unable to attend tomorrow's event will be invited to see the President between now and election day."
