New Bipartisan Index Released by Lugar Center at Georgetown University

WASHINGTON, DC — Today, the Lugar Center, founded by the late former U.S. Senator Richard Lugar, and the McCourt School of Public Policy at Georgetown University named U.S. Congressman Josh Gottheimer (NJ-5) as the most bipartisan Democratic member of the House of Representatives.

“I’m incredibly proud to be named the most bipartisan House Democrat of the 116th Congress. Now, more than ever, we see the importance of putting country and governing over partisan politics and gridlock. I’m going to continue working together with anyone, Democrat or Republican, if the end result is good for Jersey and lives up to our values. That’s the only way we’ll actually solve the problems facing our nation and our communities,” said Congressman Josh Gottheimer (NJ-5), the Co-Chair of the bipartisan Problem Solvers Caucus.

Previously, the Lugar Center named Gottheimer as the most bipartisan freshman Democrat in the 115th Congress.
