Collins ranked most bipartisan senator for 7th consecutive year

May 17, 2020

Washington, D.C. — A study by the Lugar Center and The McCourt School of Public Policy at Georgetown University ranks U.S. Sen. Susan Collins as the most bipartisan Senator for the seventh consecutive year.

“I have long believed that Congress produces the best legislation when it incorporates the ideas of both Republicans and Democrats. That spirit of bipartisan cooperation is needed now more than ever to confront the unprecedented crisis facing our nation,” Collins said in a news release. “Congress has shown it is capable of reaching across the aisle to help protect Americans’ health and support our communities during the COVID-19 pandemic. I will continue my efforts to bring people on both sides of the aisle together as we seek to safely reopen our society. I applaud the Lugar Center’s ongoing work to encourage civility in Congress.”

Dan Diller, policy director at the Lugar Center said of Collins: “Her record-breaking 2019 mark is all the more notable in that she has outscored all senators in the Bipartisan Index for an unprecedented seven consecutive years. No other senator comes close to Sen. Collins in the frequency and consistency with which she has worked with the other party on legislation. She is the gold standard for bipartisanship in the U.S Congress.”
