Barack Obama Secures Democratic Nomination For President

Posted: Updated:

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — President Barack Obama has accepted his party's nomination for a second term, saying voters face the clearest choice at any time in a generation.

Obama says at the Democratic National Convention on Thursday night that America has been tested by the cost of war, a troubled economy and crippling political gridlock.

He calls the election a choice between two different paths for America and two fundamentally different visions of the future.
