WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – On Thursday, a New York Times correspondent talked politics with Purdue students.

Political analyst Jonathan Martin spoke to more than 40 students and faculty about the topic, “Choices and Decision: The 2014 and 2016 Elections.”

Martin said students were curious about the 2016 election. He said the parties have flipped their usual roles on their organizational status.

“Now, it looks like it’s the democrats who are going to have a coronation if Hilary Clinton does run. It’s the republicans who have potentially a wide open and even fractious primary coming up here,” said Martin.

Martin said it was his first time at Purdue.

The event was part of the Purdue Institute for Civil Communication series that will also feature a discussion on Neil Armstrong landing on the moon and a student political debate.
