Friday at noon is the deadline for candidates to file their paperwork to run in an Indiana city race. One candidate did just that Thursday morning.

Archie Carter attracted a small crowd of supporters as he filed to run for the fourth ward seat on Evansville’s city council.

The Republican said in his speech that he heard his campaign is going to be an uphill battle.

The fourth ward is heavily Democratic, and long-time incumbent Connie Robinson, who’s not seeking re-election, has endorsed Alex Burton.

Carter is a lifelong fourth-ward resident and he’s never run for office before. "I feel like there’s time for a real change and be able to give the people of the fourth ward a real choice," he says, "rather that someone just stepping in that position maybe as it has happened in the past."

Carter’s filing was the last one on the election office’s schedule before the Friday deadline.
