NORMAN, OKLAHOMA – After a week spent visiting with constituents from across Oklahoma’s Fourth District, Tom Cole today formally announced his intention to seek reelection to Congress. Congressman Cole is one of two American Indians serving in the current Congress. He is a tribal citizen of the Chickasaw Nation, based in Ada, Oklahoma.

“I have enjoyed traveling across the district the past several days to visit about the issues that our country faces, and about the common-sense solutions that we believe Oklahoma can offer for the nation,” said Cole. “While representing the people of the Fourth District, I have consistently fought for a smaller and less intrusive government, lower taxes, and less burdensome regulations. I have always supported our active duty and retired military and worked to preserve the jobs and mission of our military installations.”

“This election, we have an opportunity to send more conservatives to Congress and elect a president who will work with us rather than against us. Together with a new president, we can reverse the cuts to our military, finally repeal Obamacare, reform our entitlement programs, and get our debt under control.”

“Over the coming months, I look forward to traveling across the district to visit with voters about the serious issues facing our nation. If I am fortunate enough to be reelected, I look forward to continuing to fight every day for the values and interests of the people of the Fourth District.”
