Organizers change venue for Democrats’ celebration

Tuesday, June 26th, 2012

RALEIGH, NC (AP) — Organizers of a celebration scheduled to kick off the Democratic National Convention are moving the Labor Day event from Charlotte Motor Speedway to the city’s uptown.

Charlotte In 2012 spokeswoman Suzi Emmerling said late Monday that as the date of the event drew closer, logistics became a challenge. Emmerling said moving the celebration to uptown Charlotte near the convention venue would make it more accessible and family friendly. The speedway is about 18 miles outside the city.

The convention has already been shortened from the traditional four days to three to have a day to celebrate the region.

The convention is being held at Charlotte’s Time Warner Arena. President Barack Obama’s nomination acceptance speech on Sept. 6 is scheduled for Bank of America Stadium. Both arenas are in downtown Charlotte.

NC panel wants more workers to talk on DOT letters

Tuesday, June 26th, 2012

RALEIGH, NC (AP) — A North Carolina senator wants to hear from more state employees before deciding how to respond to Gov. Bev Perdue’s administration officials changing letters from a Department of Transportation executive without his approval.

Sen. Tom Apodaca said Tuesday he’s asking two transportation workers and Perdue Deputy Chief of Staff Kevin McLaughlin to visit the Senate Rules Committee on Wednesday and speak about letters sent this month to legislators about two toll road projects.

The letters attributed to DOT Chief Operating Officer Jim Trogdon appeared to reverse his earlier statement suggesting $63 million were not needed next year for the projects. Trogdon later disavowed the letters and said his digital signature had been added.

Apodaca said he wants the committee to decide Thursday what action – if any – to take.

Hunter: She and John Edwards no longer a couple

COLUMBIA, SC (AP) — Rielle Hunter says she and former presidential candidate John Edwards are no longer a couple.

Hunter told ABC’s “Good Morning America” on Tuesday that she and Edwards were still in a relationship until late last week, as details from Hunter’s memoir became public. Hunter says the breakup was painful but that Edwards will still be involved with their daughter, Quinn.

“What Really Happened: John Edwards, Our Daughter and Me” is being released Tuesday. The Associated Press reported on the book last week.

In the book, Hunter describes intimate details about her affair with Edwards and sheds light on his thoughts as federal prosecutors mounted a case against him on illegal campaign contribution charges.

A judge declared a mistrial last month, and federal prosecutors have opted not to retry Edwards.
