Former "Survivor" contestant Rupert Boneham is running for Indiana Governor.

The Libertarian candidate for governor was at the State Fair Thursday to talk to voters about his views on education, taxes and other issues.

Rupert Boneham shared his platform during one of the fair’s “Meet the Candidates” session. Boneham says he would de-centralize state government and close offices in Indianapolis and open them in communities, to give power back to the communities.

He also says education is key to his campaign.

“Our classrooms would not suffer as much if we started grading them on the progress through the year and not the performance on one test,” Boneham says.

The former “Survivor” winner says he would also like to create a 3-percent corporate income tax, dropping it 5-percent, and believes it would save money.

Boneham faces Republican Mike Pence and Democrat John Gregg in November. The “Meet the Candidates” sessions end with Republican Gubernatorial candidate Mike Pence on August 15 from 4p.m. to 4:30pm.
