California State University, Bakersfield will join the thousands who have toured C-SPAN's Campaign 2008 Bus as part of the "Road to the White House" tour when the bus stops by the campus on Friday, Jan. 25, from noon to 2 p.m. The bus will be parked on the east side of the pedestrian mall just north of the Science Building, right across the street from Peet's Coffee and Tea.

The 45-foot mobile production studio is on the campaign trail to promote and enhance C-SPAN's comprehensive political coverage, traveling to major political events such as candidate debates and speeches in early primary states, touring state capitols, and also conducting educational programs for teachers and students.

This event, in partnership with Bright House Networks, is part of the bus's inaugural "Road to the White House" tour, named after C-SPAN's political program that marks its 20th year on the air in 2008.
