GOP questions if Obama speech moved because of problems filling seats

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (By Alex Pappas, The Daily Caller) — Republicans reacted to the news that President Obama’s acceptance speech at the Democratic National Committee on Thursday is being moved away from the large Bank of America stadium to a smaller indoor venue because of the weather by questioning whether it’s really because the Democrats are worried about attendance.

“Problems filling the seats?” Republican National Committee spokeswoman Kirsten Kukowski asked reporters in a Wednesday email.

Kukowski argued that “the Democrats continue to downgrade convention events due to lack of enthusiasm.”
