"The shortcomings of the farm bill and the FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) funds that were supposed to help our farmers is a big issue," Bolinger said.
"I would renew our South American trade agreements, improve those agreements and implement them without delaying trades," he said.
Bolinger said he has a privately owned property management business.
The 3rd District stretches across all of western and central Nebraska and includes the northeastern and southeastern corners of the state.
