Indiana’s first openly gay major party candidate for governor announced his bid Monday.

Indianapolis tech entrepreneur Josh Owens will seek the Democratic nomination.

Josh Owens is the CEO of SupplyKick, an Indianapolis-based online retailer. The 34-year-old, who’s never before run for elected office, announced he’s filed for governor.

Former Indiana Governor Evan Bayh says the partisan nature of modern politics has dismayed him from committing to another run.
