Congressman Sanford Bishop

Representing the 2nd District of Georgia



As the Ranking Democrat on the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Military Construction, Veterans Affairs, and Related Agencies, and as the Co-Chair of the Congressional Military Family Caucus, I am a proud supporter of the men and women of our nation’s armed forces and their families.

Fiscal Responsibility

I am a member of the fiscally conservative Democratic Blue Dog Coalition, which is “dedicated to a core set of beliefs that transcend partisan politics, including a deep commitment to the financial stability and national security of the United States.”  I support amending the United States Constitution to require a balanced budget and ensure that lawmakers act in a fiscally responsible manner.

Our Communities

AGRICULTURE: Georgia’s farmers, ranchers, and producers are the backbone of our state’s most important industry: agriculture.

Our Livelihoods

My top three priorities are (in no particular order): (1) jobs; (2) jobs; and (3) jobs.
