The moderate-liberal Democratic Congressman from Georgia lays out his priorities, if (really, more like when) he is re-elected. From the Macon Telegraph (Georgia): "Bishop says he would continue pushing hard for funding agricultural research. There are many federally funded research stations in Georgia, and it’s their work that can keep American products internationally competitive through high quality, he said. Bishop said he supports school lunch and other food assistance programs for the young, poor and elderly. But his seat on the military construction subcommittee give him a special advantage in steering the district’s many military bases through rounds of the Base Realignment and Closing process, he said. 'I am proud to say that we had $3.5 billion of military construction at Fort Benning alone, as a result of that BRAC [Base Realignment & Closure] process and reorganization,' Bishop said."
