Montes was born in 1947 and studied to become a teacher from 1963 to 1966.[1]

Beltrán Montes first made his appearance in the PRI in the 1970s, serving for nearly a decade as secretary of the Municipal Directive Committee (CDM) of the PRI in Chihuahua. After a decade away from politics, he became the head of the CDM in 1990. The next year, he was sent to the LV Legislature as a federal deputy from the now-defunct tenth district. After his term ended in 1994, Beltrán Montes founded Grupo BM Radio, beginning with station XEDP in Ciudad Cuauhtémoc. BM Radio now has thirteen stations, all in Chihuahua; Beltrán Montes hosts the weekly program "Cuestión de Minutos", which originates in Cuauhtémoc and is carried on all of the BM stations.[2]

In 1998, Beltrán Montes was elected to the LIX Legislature of Chihuahua and chaired its board of directors.[1] After his term in the state legislature, he ran for and won election to the municipal presidency of Cuauhtémoc, and when that three-year term ended, he served in further party positions in the PRI. He was the state coordinator for social communication in the run-up to the 2006 presidential elections and a national councilmember. In 2006, he ran for the PRI to return to San Lázaro, winning election as the deputy representing Chihuahua's seventh district. While in the LX Legislature, he served on five committees including Rural Development, National Defense and Radio, Television and Film.[1]

Beltrán Montes returned to the municipal presidency of Ciudad Cuauhtémoc when he was elected for a new three-year term in 2010.[3]
