Relentless Dealer Services (RDS) President Jamison Carrier filed paperwork this week to run for an Indiana U.S. House seat.
Carrier joins four other Republicans running in the primary for Indiana’s 6th District seat. U.S. Rep Greg Pence, who holds the seat now, is not seeking reelection.
Carrier describes himself as a business owner, native Hoosier and Trump Republican.
“Today, I was thrilled to announce my candidacy for the Indiana 6th District congressional race,” Carrier said Tuesday. “I cannot wait to hit the ground running, connect with constituents and earn the support of all my fellow Hoosiers.”
Carrier said he was running in part to solve the country’s crisis at the border. Carrier and his wife, Kathy, lost their son, Joey, to fentanyl poisoning in 2022.
“The border might be 1,000 miles away but the decisions being made in Washington D.C. regarding border security have real-life consequences for families all across our state, including mine,” he said. “I’m running for Congress because enough is enough. I’m not a politician. I’m a business owner, a native Hoosier and a Trump Republican who will put America and our families first.”
Carrier said he hopes to protect freedoms and stop reckless federal spending while fighting for free-market principles.
He began his career at Tom Raper RV and worked at Camping World before launching RDS, an F&I services and training company working with more than 100 dealerships nationwide.
