March 25, 2008 — C-SPAN’s Campaign 2008 Bus will make a visit to the University of Virginia on Thursday, March 27, between 11:30 a.m. and 2 p.m.
The bus, which brings together political minds of all levels to address the relationship between politics and the media, will be at Clark Hall on 291 McCormick Road. The stop is being hosted by the Center for Politics, which will be registering voters during the stay as part of the center's Voter Registration Coalition.
Named after the network’s signature political program now in its 20th year, the “Road to the White House” tour promotes and enhances the network’s extensive, neutral political coverage.
In partnership with Comcast, the Campaign 2008 Bus offers tours of its studio set and the opportunity to learn how a television show is produced. Since its launch in January 2007, the 45-foot, state-of-the-art mobile production studio has visited 108 cities and hosted more than 33,000 visitors and 235 elected officials. The bus travels to major political events such as candidate debates and speeches in primary states, tours state capitols and conducts educational programs for teachers, students and voters.
