Donna Marie Bebo:

Bebo knows first-hand that achieving the American Dream isn’t always easy, but believes that all things worth achieving require taking a determined step forward. Bebo was born in Dubuque, Iowa, where early family life was a struggle, including the arrest of her father for child molestation.

During her teen years, Bebo reached out to other teens who were survivors of sexual abuse, using her experiences as a constant reminder that she could survive anything life threw her way.

Years later, Bebo appreciated the sacrifices her mother made when she became a single mother herself.

As an Army wife, Bebo has watched husband, Jason, deploy to Iraq and has counted the days until his return. Bebo is not a typical politician.

Cole has served as the State Chairman of the Oklahoma Republican Party, District Director to former Congressman Mickey Edwards, a member of the State Senate, and Oklahoma’s Secretary of State.

A former college instructor in history and politics, Cole holds a B.A. from Grinnell College, an M.A. from Yale University, and a Ph.D. from the University of Oklahoma.

He has been a Thomas Watson Fellow and a Fulbright Fellow at the University of London. He currently serves on the national Board of the Fulbright Association and is a member of the Congressional Advisory Board to the Aspen Institute.

Cole is a fifth generation Oklahoman and a member of the Chickasaw Nation. He is currently the only Native American serving in Congress.
