Gov. Eric Holcomb could get a primary challenge next year.

Brian Roth, a Republican from Carmel, filed paperwork this week to run.

Roth runs a leadership consulting firm in the affluent Indianapolis suburb. He filed paperwork for a gubernatorial run with the Indiana Election Division, though he’s not commenting on his potential bid.

Roth’s website touts his 30 years of experience in the U.S. Navy and the private and non-profit sectors.

The central Indiana businessman faces an uphill battle to even make it on the ballot – candidates for governor must secure 4,500 total voter signatures, 500 from each of Indiana’s nine congressional districts.

Holcomb, the incumbent, is expected by many to have an easy path to reelection.
