Thank you so much! Being on Survivor gave me a chance to show the world who I am and what we Hoosier boys can do. I think people saw in me honesty and integrity, even when I was beat down and starving. I've been able to be for 48 years here's to the next 48 and hopefully 8 of them as Governor of Indiana.

We can't keep putting people in jail for hurting themselves. A state study just came out showing that our prisons are over capacity and we'll need to build more. Instead of doing that... I think we need to change the way we handle drug addiction. It's a medical condition, not a crime.

Let's get through this race before we start planning the next one ;)

And I gave it away. $487,000 in taxes, $236,000 on my family (bills, used car for mom, daughter's education, house payments etc) and then split $277,000 between three local charities. We pay our taxes, take care of our home and then help others.

Thank you so much! I think it got boring when it went from being a battle against yourself to a battle against others. It's not Survivor anymore, now it's Conniver.

No way do I want to be a career politician! When I leave office after 8 years of service to Hoosiers I'll still be doing what I always... advocate for youth and community empowerment programs. Two 4 year terms is all you can do as Governor.

Ok everyone it's after 9pm. I need to go and tuck my daughter into bed. I'll be coming in here over the next few days and responding to some of the questions I didn't get to. What do you think... should we do this again Sunday November 4th at 7pm?

Battling sleep deprivation, starvation, endless challenges and conniving backstabbers... Then there was my time on Survivor.

You should vote for me because you are "disgusted" by the major parties. Nothing changes if you don't vote for the change. If you like my policies, how I approach things and my sense of personal responsibility...then you should use your vote as a loud voice demanding change in the system.

Neither. I wouldn't hurt any animal. Especially something as special and unique as a duck sized horse or a horse sized duck. But if I was still on Survivor and lost the last challenge for a steak... that's a horse of a different breed.
