Tom Cole


Congressman Tom Cole was elected to the House of Representatives in 2002 and is currently in his eleventh term representing Oklahoma's Fourth Congressional District. Cole is a senior member of  the House Appropriations Committee and chair of the Rules Committee.  Cole sponsored legislation that deepens U.S.-Israel defense collaboration and supports bills that impose sanctions on Palestinian terror organizations such as Hamas.

“This critical security supplement to Israel…enhances Iron Dome and other Israeli defense systems while expanding safety and readiness for U.S. personnel and citizens serving in the area. I stand firmly with Israel and its right to defend itself in full force against terror. It is of great importance that Congress and the president come together to provide Israel aid, and I am proud the House took the first step to do so.” - Congressman Tom Cole
