After completing its Campaign 2012 travels, the C-SPAN Bus is now in its 20th year on the road and has a new look and a new season of tours.  It is visiting numerous cities, schools and universities across the country, promoting C-SPAN’s educational and political resources for students, teachers and community members along the way.
