The Obama 2012 Campaign sent out this email recently inviting Democrats to the DNC Convention in Charlotte at “Panthers Stadium.”
This email may have surprised their host city since there is no Panthers Stadium. There never was a Panthers Stadium.
The DNC Convention will be held at Bank of America stadium… But Democrats currently have a war against
the rich, business owners, doctors, white men, stay at home moms, bankers so they switched the stadium name to Panthers.
It’s one of the drawbacks to running a campaign based on the politics of division.
The Politico reported, via JWF:
National Democrats have repeatedly touted their stand against taking corporate money for their convention in September, and so it was striking to see two emails from the DNC host committee referring to the Charlotte venue where President Obama will speak as “Panthers Stadium.”
It’s the place where the Panthers play, but it’s actually called Bank of America stadium.
A recent email from the host committee signed by former Al Gore campaign manager Donna Brazile urged people to win a trip to Charlotte for the event, which will wrap “Thursday night at Panthers Stadium with President Obama.”
Another email in June made the same pitch about the stadium.
A host committee spokeswoman didn’t respond to an email. But it’s not like the stadium was ever called Panthers Stadium – first opened in 1996, it was Carolinas Stadium, and later Ericsson Stadium. Then the current corporate iteration.
