Republican Congressman Mike Pence has filed his petition for governor.

U.S. Congressman Mike Pence (R-6) turned in 13,000 petition signatures to secure his place on the May primary ballot for Indiana governor. Pence says his campaign will stay relatively low-key for at least another month or so.

“This is Indiana’s moment,” Mike Pence said in a statement released Monday. “We will use the coming months to build on this strong grassroots support in order to build an even better Indiana that has good jobs, great schools, safe streets and strong families.”

The signatures represent all of Indiana‘s 92 counties. Gubernatorial nominees are only required to have 4500 certified signatures to get on the ballot.
