Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush is the first Republican Presidential candidate to file signatures to appear on the Indiana ballot in the May primary.

According to the Bush communications team, he is filing more  than twice the required signatures for ballot access.

Under Indiana law, a candidate must have at least 500 signatures from registered voters from each of the nine Congressional districts.

The Bush team is currently checking with county clerks across the state to verify the signatures.

Bush is the first candidate to file for verification.

The only other candidates to have official organizations in Indiana are John Kaisch, Marco Rubio, Carly Fiorina and Dr. Ben Carson.
