CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Campaign aides say President Barack Obama’s convention speech Thursday is being moved indoors due to possible severe weather.

The aides say the entire program also will take place inside, including Vice President Joe Biden’s speech.

Obama’s acceptance speech was originally scheduled for the Bank of America Stadium. It will now be moved to the Time Warner Cable Arena.
