DNC Shortens Dem Convention

It's all a done deal, after all. Via press release:
Democratic National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz announced in a press conference in Charlotte’s Bank of America Stadium that the convention would be shortened by one day, from four to three days. The Monday of convention week, Labor Day, will be designated as a day to celebrate the Carolinas, Virginia and the South at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Additionally, Wasserman Schultz announced that the final night of the convention will be held in Bank of America Stadium, to allow tens of thousands of additional Americans to attend President Obama’s acceptance speech. “We wanted to find a way to truly make this convention different than any other in history. We want this convention to be about more than just the pageantry and speeches you see on television. This is about engaging Americans in a meaningful way,” said DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
