Additionally, the bus will tour state capitals, visit community events, and host students and teachers around the nation, giving them an inside look at C-SPAN's comprehensive educational and political resources.
"The political process is critical to everything we do as Arizonans and it is necessary that our young people learn about the importance of campaigns," said Lisa Lovallo, vice president for Cox in Southern Arizona. "We are so glad that our partner C-SPAN can join us in Tucson to impart this critical education experience."

"C-SPAN offers a variety of public affairs programming and resources for educators, students, first-time voters, and the general public.
