(Indianapolis, Ind.) - Reality TV star Rupert Boneham is officially running for governor of Indiana.
The "Survivor" winner made the announcement over the weekend that he was seeking the Libertarian nomination in the race to succeed Governor Mitch Daniels.
“There are a lot of issues facing Hoosiers right now. I am ready to stand up and face them all,” Boneham said.
The 47-year-old from Indianapolis said he thinks he has a good chance to win the election.
He has been talking with small business owners and residents across the state hearing concerns since he formed an exploratory committee in late August.
Also in the field are Republicans Jim Wallace and Congressman Mike Pence, along with former Democratic state House Speaker John Gregg.
The Indiana Libertarian Party will make its official endorsement for a gubernatorial candidate at an April 14, 2012 state convention, according to the Indianapolis Star.
