C-SPAN Brings Campaign Bus to UMW

The C-SPAN Campaign 2012 Bus rolled into Fredericksburg on Thursday, Sept. 27 and made a stop on UMW’s Fredericksburg campus. The stop was part of a four-day tour to five Virginia universities and colleges to speak to students and community members regarding their thoughts about campaign issues.

When the bus first arrived, Stephen Farnsworth, political science professor and director of the University’s Center for Media and Leadership Studies, was a guest on C-SPAN’s Washington Journal segment. Throughout the morning, students, faculty and staff toured the bus, tested their knowledge of American politics and shared their thoughts about the upcoming election. Short interviews with members of the UMW community are available at http://www.tout.com/u/cspanpolitics and may be used in upcoming C-SPAN programming.
