Chancellor Gives Insight Into Presidential Library Bid

Right now, Texas Tech is making preparations to head to Washington D.C. The purpose? To convince a committee that the Bush Presidential Library belongs in West Texas. NewsChannel 11's Suleika Acosta spoke with Texas Tech Chancellor David Smith about the library.

Texas Tech is among the finalists for the library. In less than one month, the university will go before the Library Selection Committee. We've just learned that committee could include Vice President Dick Cheney, Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice and First Lady Laura Bush.

The other schools competing are Baylor, SMU and the University of Dallas. But Chancellor Smith tells us Tech has an advantage as the only public university in the running. "To be the only public institution at this point, we feel very good about it, just like we would in any other sort of competition," says Dr. David Smith.

The proposal before the committee will include an oral presentation. The chancellor tells us this will be Tech's opportunity to really express it's passion for this library.
