Long-term analysis ranks Senator Collins as the most bipartisan current senator and the 2nd most bipartisan senator overall
WASHINGTON, D.C.—In a new bipartisan analysis of 227 Senators from 1993-2014 unveiled today by the Lugar Center and Georgetown University’s McCourt School of Public Policy, U.S. Senator Susan Collins ranks as the most bipartisan current senator and the 2nd most bipartisan senator overall.
The non-partisan analysis examines all U.S. Senators who have served at least 10 months in the Senate between 1993-2014 and indicates the degree to which they work across party lines. The rankings are based on bill sponsorship and cosponsorship and follow the initial Bipartisan Index data for the 113th Congress (2013-14) that was released this May. The index found that Senator Collins was the most bipartisan member of the Senate during the 113th Congress.
