DNC 2012: What to expect this week
I am still searching for a daily schedule which includes more than just Tuesday at the DNC but I’m not sure I’m going to find one. Seems like the schedules are still being finalized and maybe we’ll get the Wednesday schedule on Tuesday.
Here is a little rundown on the DNC highlights from WTSP:
The biggest name will be former President Bill Clinton. He will speak Wednesday night. San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro will give the keynote speech Tuesday evening. First lady Michelle Obama and former President Jimmy Carter will also speak that night. Vice President Joe Biden and President Barack Obama will speak Thursday. Who won’t be speaking? Secretary of State Hilary Clinton.
The first two days of the convention will take place in downtown Charlotte, N.C. at the Times Warner Cable Arena. Vice President Joe Biden and President Barack Obama will accept their nominations Thursday at Bank of America Stadium.
The Democratic National Convention Committee has announced the full line-up of performers set to take the stage at Time Warner Cable Arena and Bank of America Stadium this week.
“This roster of performances only adds to the excitement building in Charlotte for the historic week ahead of us,” said 2012 Democratic National Convention Chair Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa. “The tens of thousands who will attend Convention events in person, and all those tuning in across the country, should be ready for quite a show.”
In the previous DNC 2012 post, I incorrectly stated that Joe Biden would be speaking Wednesday up against the NFL kickoff game. That is not the case, both Biden and President Obama will be speaking Thursday.
