TAMPA, FLA. (Jan. 30, 2012) – As part of its country-wide Road to the White House tour, the C-SPAN Campaign 2012 Bus parked outside of the University of South Florida Library for a couple of hours Monday to teach students about politics and C-SPAN.


With the Florida primary tomorrow, Marketing Specialist Rachel Katz said it’s important for C-SPAN to make an appearance.


“The purpose is to let people know about all the resources C-SPAN has,” Katz said.


The interactive bus showed examples of C-SPAN’s internet and social media resources, spanning televisions, touch-screens, laptops, tablet and mobile devices.
