NEWS: Kelly Rated Among Most Bipartisan Senators, Data Reveals
Today, Arizona Senator Mark Kelly was rated one of the most bipartisan Senators, according to 2021 data released by the Bipartisan Index rankings from the Lugar Center and the McCourt School of Public Policy at Georgetown University. Kelly’s strong bipartisan score landed him in the top 25. The annual ranking is based on the number of bills the lawmakers co-sponsored with opposite-party sponsors and the number of opposite-party co-sponsors they attract on their own bills.
“When I took office, I committed to working with Republicans and Democrats to deliver results for Arizonans. Since then, we’ve broken through partisan gridlock to pass our historic Bipartisan Infrastructure Law that will create millions of jobs, fix our roads and bridges, and make our state more resilient to drought without raising taxes. And, in the coming weeks, I’ll be working closely with Republicans and Democrats to pass my plan to increase Arizona microchip manufacturing and tackle supply chain challenges that are driving up costs for hardworking Arizona families. We still have a lot of work ahead of us, and I’ll keep working with anyone to deliver for Arizona families,” said Senator Mark Kelly.
Kelly has previously been named the most bipartisan freshman Democratic senator, according to data released by Axios, and was recently noted as having “the fourth most conservative voting record among Senate Democrats…according to voting scores by the University of California-Los Angeles.”
