IPFW's Omnibus Lecture Series kicked off Thursday with a sold-out lecture from former Florida governor and Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush.

In a press conference Thursday afternoon, Bush said Donald Trump's selection of Indiana Gov. Mike Pence as his running mate was one of Trump's better decisions.

But Bush wouldn’t endorse Trump and said he isn’t sure how he will vote in November.

“For the first time in my life, I haven’t figured that out completely yet,” he said. “I’m really interested in the first debate.”

Some pundits are saying the Hoosier primary is make-or-break for GOP frontrunner Donald Trump.

WBOI’s Katy Anderson spoke with Ken Rudin, host of the Political Junkie podcast and former political editor at NPR, to get his take.

Rudin says Indiana is in a rare position to make some important presidential choices.
