The Midterm Elections & 2016
Midterm congressional elections are traditionally viewed as a referendum of the sitting president. With the Senate potentially up for grabs and the 2016 presidential election lurking around the corner, the implications of this November’s elections can hardly be understated. Will President Obama’s poor approval ratings doom the Democrats in Congress? How will the president’s agenda change in his last two years of office? Who will emerge as the front-runners for an open presidential election? The only thing that is certain is that American voters will have a lot to discuss and debate.
The 2014 Bulen Symposium on American Politics will provide a forum for discussion and debate on these and many other political developments. This year we are happy to welcome Senator Richard Lugar as our keynote speaker; the chairs of the Indiana State Republican and Democratic Parties, Tim Berry and John Zody; and media representatives Tony Cook from the Indy Star, Amber Stearns from NUVO, and Lesley Weidenbener from The Statehouse File. We also welcome political scientists Dr. Jeffery Mondak from the University of Illinois and Dr. Edward Burmila from Bradley University.
