It’s out of the convention hall and onto the stage at Invesco Field at Mile High Stadium in Denver where Senator Barack Obama will deliver his historic acceptance speech as the first ever African-American nominee of a major political party.
Here’s the email from the Obama camp.
I wanted you to be the first to hear the news.
At the Democratic National Convention next month, we’re going to kick off the general election with an event that opens up the political process the same way we’ve opened it up throughout this campaign.
Barack has made it clear that this is your convention, not his.
On Thursday, August 28th, he’s scheduled to formally accept the Democratic nomination in a speech at the convention hall in front of the assembled delegates.
Instead, the convention will move to an outdoor stadium where Barack will join more than 75,000 people for a huge, free, open-air event and deliver his acceptance speech to the American people.
It’s going to be an amazing event, and Barack would like you to join him. Free tickets will become available as the date approaches, but we’ve reserved a special place for a few of the people who brought us this far and who continue to drive this campaign.
This reminder that The Liberal OC will be in Denver covering this historic convention.
Lastly, thanks to Chris Prevatt for his tireless work in upgrading our blog to a new web host and for porting over our data; the process is not yet complete, and as fellow political blogs in OC (Red County and Orange Juice) know this takes a little time.Â We apologize for the downtime to our loyal readers and please know we’re working on a number of posts to make up the time.
