Pfluger Earns Texas Municipal Police Association EndorsementPress Release
AUSTIN, TX — The Texas Municipal Police Association (TMPA) Thursday announced their endorsement of Lt. Col. August Pfluger (R-San Angelo) in the Republican Primary for Texas’ 11th Congressional District.
"As someone who has served in uniform for nearly two decades, August Pfluger knows what it takes to keep our country safe," said Mitch Landry, Deputy Executive Director of Government Affairs. "There is no better choice than someone with such unparalleled service experience and demonstrated passion for this county. August Pfluger will be able to work hand-in-hand with peace officers from day one to protect the people of Texas."
The Texas Municipal Police Association (TMPA) was founded in 1950 and has advocated for the interests of law enforcement officers in Austin and Washington ever since. As the largest law enforcement association in Texas, TMPA represents more than 29,000 local, county and state law enforcement officers across the state of Texas.
“I’m proud to have the endorsement of the Texas Municipal Police Association in this campaign, and even prouder to support the brave Texas police officers who put their lives on the line every day to keep our families safe,” said Pfluger.
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.
