Independent rankings: Sinema’s work in the U.S. House earned top marks as third most bipartisan Democrat during 115th Congress

WASHINGTON – The Lugar Center and Georgetown University’s McCourt School of Public Policy named Arizona senior Senator Kyrsten Sinema the third most bipartisan Democrat and the seventh most bipartisan member of the U.S. House during the 115th Congress in their new Bipartisan Index.

“Working across the aisle is how I get things done for Arizona. I’m proud of our bipartisan work in the U.S. House and we are continuing those efforts in the U.S. Senate,” said Sinema.

As a U.S. House member in the minority party, Sinema championed more than 30 bills that were signed into law during the 115th Congress. Sinema also ranked as one of the most bipartisan U.S. House members during the 114th Congress 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.
