Q. What serious issue in your state would you like the next president to address?

For people my age, if we can’t get (health insurance) from our parents, we’re pretty much out of luck. I’m active. I work out. I play basketball. If I injure myself I can’t afford to pay to get myself fixed.

Nebraska delegate Logan Dobbs, 22, Hastings College, senior.
