Biden and Obama were scheduled to speak at the Bank of America Stadium, instead of the Time Warner Cable Arena which hosted the first two days of the DNC but weather conditions scratched those plans. Both men are now scheduled to speak at the Time Warner Cable Arena instead.
"We have been monitoring weather forecasts closely and several reports predict thunderstorms in the area, therefore we have decided to move Thursday's proceedings to Time Warner Cable Arena to ensure the safety and security of our delegates and convention guests," said DNCC CEO Steve Kerrigan in a statement on the DNC website.
Biden is expected to speak on the working class, according to Associated Press.
"His target audience will be the white, working-class voters who will be seeing a lot more of the vice president in the coming weeks," stated reporter Philip Elliott.
Biden will also speak on Obama's foreign policies, touting the death of Osama bin Laden last year.
Obama will also formally accept the Democratic Party's presidential nomination tonight.
According to Newser, Obama's senior adviser, David Plouffe "promised the president would give voters 'a very clear sense of where he thinks the country needs to go economically, the path we need to take.''
US News' Noam Neusner wrote that Obama should focus on foreign policy and national security.
He stated, "The empty space left by the Republicans in Tampa wasn't Clint Eastwood's empty chair, but the candidate's lack of discussion of America's leadership in the world. Obama must move beyond 'I killed Osama' and focus on the dangers that face America in the next four years."
