Some Asheville students got a unique opportunity to learn more about the 2020 campaign today.

The C-SPAN bus first made a stop at UNC Asheville and then Christ School afterward, all part of the network's "Battleground States Tour."

The bus is equipped with a mobile studio and several interactive tools for students to explore.

"I've found that on college campuses they're very engaged, they are very enthusiastic, they know about the issues and they have a passion for it," Doug Hemming, with C-SPAN Community Relations, said. "That's really cool to see."

The bus is headed to South Carolina next. The tour continues through December.
