Businesses concerned DNC may kill business

Hello again friends, it's Paul Cameron in the WBTV newsroom.

Tonight at 11:00PM—small businesses in and around Uptown Charlotte are concerned about what the DNC will do to their livelihoods.  We talked to the owner of a graphics store who said he'd been visited several times by the Secret Service, and showed us new surveillance cameras outside his building.  Reporter Brigida Mack says he's not the only one worried they might lose a full week of business if security for the DNC prevents people from getting to them.

First Lady Michele Obama was in Greensboro stumping for her husband today.  Word is Mitt Romney will take a bus tour of the southern states considered key to winning an election.  We're not sure when he might stop near Charlotte.

Here's the dumb crook of the week award—the owner of a restaurant put on a black mask and used a gun to rob his own place.  One problem, though.  He forgot to disguise his voice and his employees knew to tell police who pulled the stick up.
