Pfluger Raises Another $500K in Campaign ContributionsPress Release
SAN ANGELO, TX – The August Pfluger Campaign Tuesday announced that their quarterly Federal Election Commission (FEC) report will show $522,277 in contributions received over the last three months of 2019. Pfluger turned heads earlier this cycle by raising $704,910 in the first 18 days of his campaign.
“Camille and I have been so incredibly humbled by the strong base of grassroots and financial support for this campaign,” said Pfluger. “We know this race will be tough, but I expect to run a smart, disciplined campaign with a massive voter outreach plan across all 29 counties of Texas’ 11th Congressional District. Our successful in-district fundraising effort just reinforces how much our campaign’s clear message of defending our country and defending our conservative values is resonating with the people of this district.”
According the report, nearly all of Pfluger’s contributions come from donors in Texas (94%) with nearly 80% of all donations coming from within Texas’ 11th Congressional District – something the campaign says demonstrates substantial homegrown support for the Air Force veteran and San Angelo native. To date, the campaign has taken no loans and incurred no debt. Pfluger is running for the seat held by U.S. Representative Mike Conaway (R-Midland), who announced he would not seek a ninth term in 2020.
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 service members – something he’s done at every base he’s been stationed.
