NATIONAL HARBOR, Md. — Oklahoma Republican Sen. Tom Coburn said Thursday that he believes passing term limits for members of Congress might be possible.

“I think term limits are possible,” Coburn said, speaking Thursday on a panel at CPAC.

He said too many members of Congress direct too much of their focus on getting re-elected.

Coburn has set term limits for himself in the Senate, promising to only serve two terms.

He is retiring at the end of this year and will not serve out the remainder of his second term.
