C-SPAN’S Campaign 2008 Bus stops at ASU Polytechnic

Mesa residents and Arizona State University Polytechnic students will join the thousands who have boarded C-SPAN’s Campaign 2008 Bus as part of the “Road to the White House” tour when the bus stops at the Student Union on ASU’s Polytechnic campus in Mesa Nov. 3, from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. These events, in partnership with Cox Communications, are part of the bus’s inaugural “Road to the White House” tour, named after C-SPAN’s renowned political program that marks its 20th year on the air in 2008. <br /><br />The 45-foot mobile production studio is on the campaign trail to promote and enhance C-SPAN’s comprehensive political coverage. It is currently traveling to major political events such as candidate debates and speeches in primary states, touring state capitols, and conducting educational programs for teachers and students. Since its January 2007 launch, the bus has been to 43 state capitals, 145 universities and 239 schools where 816 elected officials, 8,947 teachers, over 52,400 students and four former presidential candidates have been on board. <br /><br />This event is free and open to the public.
