U.S. Senate candidate Sid Dinsdale talks about the issues

Posted: Updated:

Last week sparked the first of three debates for Nebraska's Republican U.S. Senate candidates.

Today we touch base with Sid Dinsdale about why he thinks he should replace Mike Johanns on Capitol Hill.

Born and raised on a farm in central Nebraska, Sid Dinsdale understands the importance of a farm bill.

"The farm bill is more than just a farm bill to me," says Dinsdale.  "It's about national security because there's nothing more dangerous for a country than not having a reliable and affordable food supply."
 
The U.S. farm bill is the primary agricultural and food policy tool of the federal government. 

The Pinnacle Bank Executive believes long-term ag policy is a necessity.
 
"It's very important for our farmers.  Especially for crop insurance, to know that they've got catastrophic coverage."
 
Another ongoing issue facing the nation is the future of healthcare.

Dinsdale believes Obama Care is too broken and that it must be repealed.
 
"Philosophically is my big problem with Obama Care," says Dinsdale.  "Because we are much better stewards of our money than the government is.  And Obama Care is a take-over of our health care system."
 
Another issue important to Dinsdale is the Construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline.  He believes it should be approved to help ensure the future of our nation's energy independence.

Sid Dinsdale is one of five GOP candidates.

There are two more debates before voters go to the polls for the primary election in May.

Tomorrow, KDUH reporter Brandon Marshall sits down with U.S. Senate candidate Bart McLeay.
