COLUMBIA CITY – Conservative Republican U.S. Congressman Jim Banks (IN-3) today announced his campaign to represent Indiana in the United States Senate.
“Our nation is at a turning point. We need conservatives in Washington who are not afraid to fight back against the radical socialist Democrats who are trying to change America. I was proud to serve my country in the military, and I have been on the front lines fighting for our conservative Hoosier values in Congress. With your help, I’ll do that in an even bigger way in the United States Senate,” said Banks. “Radical Democrats and the spineless Republicans are going to do everything they can to stop me, but I need your help in the fight to restore America. I look forward to meeting with as many of you as possible in the coming months on the campaign trail, hearing about what matters most to you, and how we can effectively protect our American way of life for our daughters, sons, and future generations.”
“Only in America could a small-town kid from a working-class home be able to do what I’ve been blessed to do. I grew up in Columbia City, the son of a factory worker and a nursing home cook. My parents worked hard every day to give me better opportunities than what they had. I was the first in my family to go to college, where I met my wife Amanda in the Indiana University College Republicans. I love my family, and I love America. That’s why I decided to serve my country in the military, and one of the greatest joys of my life was coming home from Afghanistan to my wife and our three little girls. I was proud to defend America then, and today, I am just as proud to fight for our conservative Hoosier values in Congress.
I’m Jim Banks. That’s why I served overseas, and it’s why I’m running for the United States Senate. To restore America, and to make sure that my daughters have the same opportunities that I’ve had in this great country. We went from the strongest president of my lifetime in Donald Trump, who always fought to put America first, to the weakest in Joe Biden, who has always put America last. Radical socialist Democrats are trying to change America. But I won’t let them. I’ve been on the front lines fighting for America’s first policies in Congress. I’ve been a leader in the fight to secure our border and pass immigration policies that put American workers first. I’ve led the fight in Congress to hold China accountable for stealing our jobs and for giving us COVID. I’ve led the fight on the House floor to keep girls’ sports for girls and to protect the unborn. And I’ve used my position on the House Armed Services and Education committees to stop Critical Race Theory and anti-Americanism from being taught in our schools and pushed on our troops. Every single day I’ve been in Congress I’ve fought for our veterans and for our men and women in uniform. I’ve been on the front lines to defend and protect America – and in the Senate, I’ll do that in an even bigger way.
Indiana deserves a conservative fighter in the United States Senate. But the radical Democrats and the spineless Republicans are going to do everything that they can to stop me. Nancy Pelosi and Joe Biden have tried to block me before. They know I won’t back down. But I need your help in the fight to restore America.

I’m Jim Banks, and I will always fight for our American way of life. America has given me the opportunity of a lifetime, and our daughters and our sons, deserve nothing less. That’s why I’m running for the United States Senate. Please join me.”
