May 5, 2021

Sinema’s work earned top marks as most bipartisan of her party during 2020

WASHINGTON – Arizona senior Senator Kyrsten Sinema earned, for the second year in a row, top marks as the most bipartisan Democrat in the United States Senate by the independent Lugar Center and Georgetown University’s McCourt School of Public Policy.
“Setting aside our differences and working together is the best way to achieve lasting results for Arizonans. My approach remains the same: I will work with anyone to expand jobs and economic opportunity, make health care more affordable, deliver for our veterans, and keep Arizonans safe and economically secure,” said Sinema.
During the first session of the 116th Congress, Sinema also ranked as the most bipartisan Senate Democrat, and continually ranked as one of the most bipartisan U.S. House members during the 115th and 114th Congresses by the Lugar Center’s Bipartisan Index.
The Bipartisan index is a non-partisan tool that measures the degree to which U.S. Senators and U.S. Representatives work across party lines every Congress. The Lugar Center is a non-profit organization that is named for and started by former Republican U.S. Senator Richard Lugar of Indiana.
