Another State Representative Endorses August Pfluger for CongressPress Release
MASON, TX — State Representative Andy Murr (R-Kerrville) joined Republican congressional candidate August Pfluger (R-San Angelo) on the steps of the Mason County Courthouse Thursday to endorse Pfluger’s campaign for Texas’ 11th Congressional District. Murr represents District 53 in the Texas House of Representatives, which includes Bandera, Crockett, Edwards, Kerr, Kimble, Llano, Mason, Medina, Menard, Real, Schleicher, and Sutton counties.
“Today, I have the privilege of endorsing my friend, Lt. Col. August Pfluger for District 11 in the U.S. House of Representatives,” said Murr. “August is a strong conservative who is committed to fighting for our rural values and traditions…his sense of civic duty started early as an Eagle Scout, and continued throughout his 20-year career in the U.S. Air Force, including his time as a national security advisor for President Donald J. Trump.”
“I’ve known the Pfluger family my whole life…our families have been ranching in Kimble County for generations,” Murr continued. “I am proud to endorse my good friend and neighbor, August Pfluger, and I know his values and family roots make him the right choice to defend our rural way of life that has made Texas the greatest state in the nation.”
Rep. Murr’s support continues to build on a strong week of momentum for Pfluger’s campaign, following Monday’s endorsement from Rep. Drew Darby (R-San Angelo) and the Texas Farm Bureau’s announcement yesterday that they intend to back Pfluger in the crowded GOP Primary.
“I’m proud to call Andy Murr a friend and honored to have his support in this campaign,” said Pfluger. “Representative Murr has an unparalleled commitment to his constituents...something I hope to emulate if elected to serve the people of this district in Congress. I look forward to working with Andy to secure our border, protect our constitutional rights, and stand up for our shared conservative values.”
Lt. Colonel August Pfluger is a 20-year veteran of the U.S. Air Force and a decorated fighter pilot with over 300 hours of direct combat against radical jihadists in the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS). Until launching his campaign in September, August served as a member of President Donald J. Trump’s National Security Council staff, where he was entrusted with our nation’s highest security clearance and charged with advising President Trump on a host of foreign and domestic threats to our nation’s security.
A seventh-generation Texan, August describes himself as a conservative Republican, a proud husband and father, and a devoted follower of Jesus Christ. He and his wife, Camille, have three young daughters, Vivian, Caroline, and Juliana. In his free time, August enjoys coaching his daughters’ youth soccer teams and leading Bible study groups for military servicemembers – something he’s done at every base he’s been stationed.
