NORMAN, OK – The citizens of Oklahoma's Fourth Congressional District have re-elected Congressman Tom Cole by a wide margin. Cole received well over 60% of the vote and appeared well on his way to sweeping every county in the Fourth District.
Congressman Cole responded to the news of his re-election with the following comments:
"It is a tremendous honor to represent my fellow Oklahomans in the U.S. House of Representatives. I am humbled by their support and trust. When we started this campaign we knew that we would have a tough fight because of the toxic political environment we faced. Washington is broken and the American people are fed up with endless partisan bickering. We need to get our economy back on track, we need a common sense energy policy that weans us off foreign sources of oil and we need a united foreign policy that recognizes the world is still a very dangerous place. As I have for the past six years, I renew my pledge to the people of Oklahoma to work in a bi-partisan manner to find real solutions to the challenges facing our great country."
"Both of my opponents ran very good campaigns, worked hard and contributed ideas to the dialogue during this process. It's clear that Oklahomans' care about the future of this country as well as the promise and growth of our state. I look forward to representing the views, the values and the interests of my fellow Oklahomans over the next two years."
