Beckwith Announces Candidacy for Indiana Lt. Governor

INDIANAPOLIS - JUNE 5, 2023 - On Monday at 9:30am EST Micah Beckwith formally announced his candidacy for Indiana Lt. Governor.

“As a father, husband and pastor, I am worried about the future of our state and nation. Our way of life is being threatened from within by the woke culture. Families are suffering due to high inflation and high property taxes. Our children are being radicalized in our schools. And crime is on the rise. We need leadership in Indianapolis that has courage, energy and determination to put our state on the right path.

That’s why today I am announcing my candidacy for Lt. Governor,” said Beckwith.

Beckwith is a proud father, devoted husband, pastor and small business owner. He and his wife, Susan, and their 2 children have been serving Hamilton County and surrounding areas for over 15 years. He is a graduate of Huntington University with a degree in business and economics. Currently, Beckwith teaches a high-school constitutional literacy class for a Christian school in Carmel. He also co-hosts the popular podcast “Jesus, Sex and Politics” with Pastor Nathan Peternel. Beckwith is inspirational speaker and has served as the keynote speaker for several not-for-profit and community groups and over the past year has toured the state as an advocate for healthcare freedom. He currently serves in leadership positions for several organizations, including: Noblesville Campus Pastor for Life Church, Executive Director of Indiana Family Action PAC, Co-Founder of Indiana Coalition Conservatives, Indiana Chairman of U.S. Term Limits, and Executive Director of Hoosier Leadership Series.

“During these turbulent times, the people of Indiana deserve a Lt. Governor who is more than a ceremonial appointment or yes person. They need a proactive Lt. Governor who will fight for our constitutional rights, lead the war against the woke culture and get the politics out of the classroom,” said Beckwith.

“As a father, I want my children to grow up in a free democracy not a socialist society. I am not going to sit on the sidelines and hope for the best. I am stepping forward to do my part in saving our state and build a brighter future for every child.”

In the past the Gubernatorial nominee has picked a Lt. Governor who is then anointed at the Republican Convention by the delegates. Beckwith believes that the people deserve a choice. That’s why he is breaking with tradition and running for Lt. Governor.

“The voters need a say in who will be second in charge of our state. It should be the choice of the people not just one person. Like the position of Governor, I believe that a candidate must present their case to the voters, so I am launching a 11 month job interview with my fellow Hoosiers for the position of Lt. Governor,” said Beckwith.

“They are going to know why it will be better with Beckwith.”
