Lt. Gov. Suzanne Crouch begins her campaign for governor



Indianapolis, Indiana – Suzanne Crouch, who is the state’s lieutenant governor, will run for governor in 2024.

Crouch turned in the paperwork Monday morning to make her official committee for running for governor.

“I have a clear vision for Indiana’s future – lower taxes, keep our citizens safe, protect the sanctity of life, and defend Hoosier values,” Crouch said in a statement on her website. “I’ve spent my life advocating for initiatives that have had a positive impact on our state’s economy, and as Governor I will challenge and innovate our state government to be more efficient and transparent.”

Crouch has been Eric Holcomb’s running mate for both of his terms as governor. She is a graduate of Purdue University and has also worked as a county auditor, county commissioner, state representative, and state auditor.

Holcomb’s time as governor ends in January 2025, as does Crouch’s time as his vice governor.

Online campaign finance documents show that as of July 15, Crouch had more than $2.5 million in cash on hand for her campaign.

Mike Braun, a U.S. senator, is likely to say Monday that he will run for governor.
