C-SPAN and Comcast are coming to Utah State University and bringing the new C-SPAN Campaign 2020 Bus to talk with students, educators, civic leaders and first-time voters in the lead-up to primary day. The bus will be parked outside the Taggart Student Center on the Logan campus Tuesday, Feb. 25, from 1-3 p.m.
Aboard the bus, visitors will learn about C-SPAN’s #Unfiltered coverage of the political process through a video-rich app featuring past and present presidential candidates on the campaign trail. C-SPAN representatives will take visitors on a virtual tour through C-SPAN's extensive video library, which includes over 256,000 hours of searchable public affairs video on C-SPAN.org. They will also discuss the network's in-depth coverage of the U.S. Congress, White House and federal courts, as well as its signature political programming.
The Campaign 2020 Bus has already crossed the country this election season, kicking off at campaign events and the first in the nation caucus in Iowa before heading to New Hampshire and Nevada for their high-profile primaries. Guests on the bus will be invited to participate in C-SPAN's "Voices from the Road" project, answering the question, "What issue do you want the candidates to focus on in 2020?" Some answers will be featured on the C-SPAN Networks and on our Twitter feed @cspanbus.
"In this unprecedented election season, C-SPAN's unfiltered approach gives you a front-row seat, unlike any other, to Campaign 2020," said Steve Scully, C-SPAN's senior executive producer and political editor. "C-SPAN's live coverage takes you from the town hall meetings and campaign rallies, to the policy speeches, party conventions and presidential debates — giving viewers the absolute best coverage on what the candidates are saying and how this historic race is unfolding along the campaign trail."
C-SPAN, the public affairs network providing Americans with unfiltered access to congressional proceedings, was created in 1979 as a public service by the cable television industry and is now funded through fees paid by cable and satellite companies that provide C-SPAN programming. C-SPAN connects with millions of Americans through its three commercial-free TV networks, C-SPAN Radio, the C-SPAN Radio App, C-SPAN.org and various social media platforms.
