Inside Politics: Obama to downsize election-night venue
Win or lose, President Obama will spend election night in his hometown of Chicago and will speak at a smaller venue than the large park where he held his victory speech four years ago, a source told Agence France-Presse on Wednesday.
Mr. Obama will deliver his remarks at McCormick Place, Chicago’s convention center, according to the source with knowledge of the matter.
Situated on Lake Michigan, McCormick Place was the venue for May’s NATO summit and is located some two miles from the city’s Grant Park, where Mr. Obama addressed a crowd of 240,000 on Nov. 4, 2008. The choice seems to suggest that the Obama campaign does not expect as large a turnout this time around.
Ryan: Obama lacked solutions during debate
BEREA — Republican vice presidential candidate Rep. Paul Ryan says President Obama didn’t offer any new ideas to turn around the economy during Tuesday night’s debate.
Mr. Ryan campaigned in swing state Ohio on Wednesday, where he told supporters in the Cleveland area that Mitt Romney followed up a strong first debate with another winning performance.
Many strict voter-ID laws blocked or delayed this year
MIAMI — Tough new election laws aimed at forcing voters in many states to show photo identification at polling places have been either blocked or delayed.
And that’s delighting opponents who claim the laws were among a variety of partisan attempts to keep minorities from voting.
Nevertheless, supporters of the measures predict they will prevail in the long run. And court battles are continuing in some states even as the Nov. 6 election date draws near.
