Boneham serious about run

Sunday, May 13, 2012

Libertarian gubernatorial candidate Rupert Boneham
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Indiana Libertarian gubernatorial candidate Rupert Boneham says he'll have more differences with the Republican and Democratic candidates than they will with each other and expects he'll gain support despite a spartan campaign operation.

Boneham told newspaper editors at the Indiana Associated Press Managing Editors meeting on Saturday that his 20 years of running mentorship programs for youths gives him a unique perspective on what he calls the burdens of state government.

Boneham says Republican Mike Pence and Democrat John Gregg will take similar positions in their campaigns and that he'll pick up support as voters across the state learn that he is a serious candidate.

Boneham gained attention as a star in the "Survivor" TV reality series, winning $1 million in 2004 when he was voted the fan favorite.
