Congressman Tom Cole (OK-04) said Thursday he was pleased President Obama would visit Moore, Sunday.

“I am pleased that the President is coming to Oklahoma this Sunday,” said Cole. “By visiting Moore and the surrounding areas, he can observe firsthand the challenges that we are facing after these deadly storms. He will also have the opportunity to thank the wonderful local, state and federal first responders who have done such a tremendous job helping our community and its citizens cope in this trying ordeal.

"I know that the citizens of Moore, local and state officials and the federal delegation would appreciate the opportunity to thank the President directly for all the help, support and sympathy extended by the federal government. These have been sad and difficult days for everyone in our state, particularly in my hometown of Moore. As a proud, long-time resident of Moore, I appreciate the sincere and personal attention that the President and the members of his administration have provided since the awful tragedy of May 20.”
