A campaign announcement video touts Greg Pence as a Republican who believes in "fiscal responsibility, the sanctity of life" and "our Second Amendment rights."
"I'm going to fight to help (President) Donald Trump help our district," Greg Pence says in the video. "That's why I'm running for the United States Congress."
Pence, who once ran the family's now-bankrupt chain of Tobacco Road convenience stores, previously said he had been courted to run for the overwhelmingly Republican district. It covers a broad swath of central and southeastern Indiana, including Muncie and Columbus.
The district's current congressman, Republican Luke Messer, is running for Senate.
