INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — "Survivor" all-star contestant Rupert Boneham is running for Indiana governor.
Boneham announced Saturday in Indianapolis that he's seeking to become the Libertarian Party's gubernatorial nominee in next year's election, saying in a statement that, "It's time for a change in Indiana."
The bushy-bearded 47-year-old who's known for wearing tie-dyed shirts said, "Hoosiers have consistently voted in professional politicians and look at the results. Hoosiers should have a different choice in 2012."
In August, Boneham formed an exploratory committee for a possible gubernatorial bid and said he wanted to gauge public support to see if they're ready to elect him.
