WASHINGTON (Big 2/Fox 24) – August Pfluger, candidate for U.S. district 11, has another endorsement under his belt and it’s a big one.
President Donald Trump has officially endorsed Pfluger for the seat, which will be left open by current U.S. Rep. Mike Conaway when he steps away from Congress.
“It’s such an incredible honor to have the support of President Trump in this campaign and I look forward to supporting him, and his America First agenda, when I’m elected to Congress,” said Pfluger. “President Trump was the Commander-in-Chief when I flew combat missions against ISIS, and just a few years later, I was serving on his national security team in the White House. Working for President Trump is what first inspired me to run for Congress…I saw what he was doing, and I wanted to help him defend our values and fight for the future of our country. I’m just incredibly grateful and humbled by his support.”
Pfluger will fight for the seat starting with the primary contest on March 3.
