Indiana‘s Libertarian Party meets Saturday to officially nominate former “Survivor” contestant Rupert Boneham for governor.
Nominations can be made from the floor, but the ticket of Boneham and Tavern League of Indiana founder Brad Klopfenstein, a former party executive director, is expected to be unopposed.
Boneham‘s platform includes more job training and ending ISTEP in favor of greater emphasis on how students are progressing.
Libertarians will also choose nominees for U.S. Senate, five U.S. House races, and a handful of races for judge, prosecutor and state legislator. So far, the only contested race is between former Republican congressional candidate Ed Gluck and Evansville resident Bart Gadau for the nomination against Congressman Larry Bucshon (R-8th).
The party is also hosting a debate among four of its six presidential hopefuls, including former Republican presidential candidate Gary Johnson, a two-term governor of New Mexico.
