Lt. Gov. Suzanne Crouch launches campaign for governor

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Indiana’s lieutenant governor, Suzanne Crouch, will run for the state’s highest office in 2024.

Crouch filed paperwork Monday morning to create her official governor campaign committee. She also launched her campaign website.

“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 served as lieutenant governor to Gov. Eric Holcomb for both of his terms in office. She has also served as a county auditor, county commissioner, state representative, and state auditor and is a graduate of Purdue University.

Holcomb’s term as governor — and Crouch’s tenure as his lieutenant governor — ends in January 2025.

As of July 15, Crouch had more than $2.5 million cash on hand for her campaign, online campaign finance documents show.

U.S. Sen. Mike Braun was expected to announce his campaign for governor sometime Monday.
