BATON ROUGE: Secretary of State Tom Schedler will make a national appearance thanks to a visit from the C-SPAN tour bus in Baton Rouge tomorrow morning.

On Tuesday, Nov. 7, a customized 45-foot motor coach will arrive in front of the State Capitol for CSPAN’s “Washington Journal” program as part of a 14-month tour of the United States. Secretary Schedler will be interviewed at approximately 8:20 a.m. on both state and national topics surrounding elections. Viewers can watch Schedler locally in Baton Rouge on Cox Channel 141 or online at www.cspan.org/community.

From there, Schedler had planned to fly to Washington D.C. to prepare for testimony Wednesday, Nov. 8 before the Subcommittees on Information Technology and Intergovernmental Affairs. However, the hearing, entitled “Cybersecurity: Ensuring the Integrity of the Ballot Box” was cancelled late Monday night by Chairman Will Hurd due to the church shooting in Texas. The hearing will be rescheduled at a later time.
