NORMAN, Okla. (AP) – Republican U.S. Representative Tom Cole has announced plans to run for re-election.

Cole announced Thursday that he will be seeking an eighth term representing Oklahoma Fourth Congressional District.

Cole said he’s fought for smaller government, lower taxes and fewer regulations while supporting military personnel and military installations.

Cole said he will spend time during the coming months traveling in the district to meet with voters.

Cole will be opposed for the GOP nomination by teacher and pastor James Taylor of Norman, who has said Cole is not conservative enough.
