Lieutenant Colonel August Pfluger has dedicated his life to defending the United States from those who would do us harm – from his days as an elite F-22 Raptor fighter pilot flying combat missions against ISIS, to his service on the National Security Council as an advisor to President Donald Trump. August Pfluger believes our nation is worth defending…and as our next U.S. Congressman, he’ll stand up to the socialists and liberal elites in Washington DC and defend our West Texas values of family, faith, and freedom.
After high school, August followed in his grandfather’s footsteps and answered his nation’s call to serve. Upon graduating with honors from the U.S. Air Force Academy, Pfluger went on to serve his country in uniform for nearly two decades – commanding hundreds of combat airmen and serving in the Pentagon and NATO Command. Today, Lieutenant Colonel Pfluger is a decorated combat veteran with over 300 hours of direct action against radical jihadists in the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS).
In 2019, August was called to serve his nation in a different capacity – as a national security advisor in the White House. As a member of President Donald J. Trump’s National Security Council staff, August 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.
August is a conservative Republican, a proud husband and father, and a devoted follower of Jesus Christ. He met his wife, Camille (also a native Texan) at his family ranch in October 2000. They 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.

DEFENDING OUR VALUES
Defending Our National Security
As a 20-year combat veteran and national security advisor to President Donald Trump, I’ve spent my entire career fighting to keep our country safe. As our next U.S. Congressman, I’ll keep up the fight against foreign threats like ISIS, China, and Russia.
Securing The Border
I support President Trump’s vision for securing America and believe we must secure our southern border to protect our citizens from dangerous drug cartels, human traffickers, and illegal immigrants.
Protecting Our Rural Values & Agriculture
As a seventh generation Texan, my family has worked the farms and ranches of this area for almost 170 years. As your voice in Congress, I’ll stand up for our farmers and ranchers and defend the traditional rural values that make Texas so exceptional.
Promoting Energy Independence
I’m proud to support the hard-working oil and gas producers that keep our Texas economy strong. In Washington, I’ll fight back against the oil-hating liberals and work to secure total energy independence for our country.
Preserving Our God-Given Rights
I will defend the Second Amendment and support the right of all law-abiding citizens to keep and bear arms for the protection of themselves and their families.
Defending Life & Traditional Values
I believe in promoting a culture of life that honors all innocent human life from the moment of conception until natural death.
As a follower of Jesus Christ, I will fight to protect the rights of Christians and other religious groups to practice their faith freely and without government interference.
