Congressman Speaks Out on War

05-30-06 - Election 2006 is already heating up and Tuesday; Congressman Tom Cole announced his plans to serve the fourth district for a 3rd term. But you cannot talk reelection without talking about the War on Terror, which tops the republican’s agenda for 2006.

Despite the latest push to withdraw troops, Cole say that it is not the answer. He says he recognizes the sacrifices local troops have made by putting their lives on the line defending our country. Oklahoma ranks in the top five states in the percentage of National Guard troops serving overseas. Cole says the work they have done is nothing short of remarkable, yet far from over.

Cole also supports President Bush’s plan to send National Guard troops to secure the U.S./Mexico border. No opponents have filed against Cole and if any plan on doing so, they have until next week.
