Congressman Sanford Bishop

Representing the 2nd District of Georgia

Issues

Defense

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.
