WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — The race for the White House is ramping up as the Republican National Convention kicks off Monday, and the Democratic National Convention is set for the following week right here in the Tar Heel State.
Saturday, supporters of President Obama who volunteered with the campaign picked up credentials to see the President officially accept the Democratic nomination. President Obama is set to deliver his acceptance speech at the Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte Thursday, September 6 during the DNC.
“I think President Obama is a president for all Americans. But as far as the convention goes, just being there,” Jimmy Gaylor said after picking up his credentials at the Obama campaign’s Wilmington field office. “I’ve watched them on TV all my life. It just seems like it’s the most exciting thing to be able to participate in the Democratic process.”
