Cole Mourns Loss of Mike McCarville
March 8, 2017
Washington, D.C. – Congressman Tom Cole (OK-04) released the following statement on the passing of Oklahoma journalist, Mike McCarville.
"I was saddened to learn of the death of my dear friend Mike McCarville,” said Cole. “Mike was a journalist, a commentator, a pioneering television and radio personality and a talented political operative. Over the years we worked together in many campaigns, and he was my communications advisor when I served as Republican State Chairman."
“Mike was a mentor, a role model and a colleague. He advised generations of Oklahoma politicians and political operatives. And he held elected officials of both parties accountable for the promises they made to the voters of Oklahoma. Most of all, however, Mike was a devoted husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather. In a profession that is hard on families, he was first and foremost a family man. My sympathies go out to his lovely wife Ann and his entire family. We lost a good man and a great Oklahoman.”
