Fitzpatrick most bipartisan in Congress

Some 437 House members were scored by the Lugar Center and Georgetown University Bipartisan Index

The Lugar Center and Georgetown University’s McCourt School unveiled the Final Bipartisan Index Rankings for the 116th Congress (2019-2020), and Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick was once again ranked the No. 1 most bipartisan member of Congress.

“Hyper-partisanship is the single biggest threat facing our nation. Bipartisanship is the only remedy that will save and heal our nation,” Fitzpatrick said. “Which of these paths one chooses determines whether they desire to be part of the problem or part of the solution. If one chooses partisanship and condemns those who think differently, they are part of the problem. If one chooses bipartisanship and seeks to build bridges with those who think differently, they are part of the solution. I have chosen, and will continue to choose, the path of bipartisanship and problem solving because I love the United States of America, the greatest country on earth.”

Some 437 House members were scored. Fitzpatrick set a Bipartisan Index record of 6.839 for the highest full-Congress score ever recorded.

The Lugar Center and Georgetown University Bipartisan Index measures how often a member of Congress introduces bills that succeed in attracting co-sponsors from members of the other party, and how often they, in turn, co-sponsor a bill introduced from across the aisle.
