Rep. Tom Cole (R-Okla.) suggested Friday he would be willing to support an increase in the minimum wage if Democrats offered job creation programs in return, including approval of the Keystone pipeline.

On MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Cole said he doesn’t think Oklahoma needs a minimum wage hike, and he doesn’t want to make that decision for other states.

“But would I look at a minimum wage increase if I thought there were other things attached to it that would create jobs like Keystone and additional things? Yeah, I think I would consider that because I think job creation is such an important thing,” Cole said.
