Most Bipartisan House Democrat for Third Year in a Row

Problem Solvers Caucus Co-Chairs Gottheimer, Fitzpatrick Hold Top Spots

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, May 3, 2022, 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. Now, more than ever, we see the importance of putting country and governing over partisan politics and gridlock. As Co-Chair of the Problem Solvers Caucus, I believe no one side owns all the best answers, so I’ll continue fighting for New Jersey with a commonsense approach. We need cut taxes, red tape, and lower costs to make life more affordable, support our veterans, fix our infrastructure, and invest in firefighter and local law enforcement to keep them and our communities safe. We aren’t in the entertainment business; we are in the get things done business,” said Congressman Josh Gottheimer (NJ-5). 

“In 2021, Rep. Gottheimer continued his outstanding record on the Bipartisan Index by ranking second overall in the House and finishing as the top House Democrat for the third year in a row,” said Dan Diller, Policy Director of the Lugar Center. “His consistent devotion to bipartisan principles sets an outstanding example for other Members at a time when bipartisanship can be hard to find in Washington.”

The top two spots in the House of Representatives are held by Problem Solvers Caucus Co-Chairs, Congressman Josh Gottheimer (NJ-5) and Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick (PA-1).

Previously, the Lugar Center named Gottheimer as the most bipartisan House Democrat in the 116th Congress, and for the third year in a row he has been the top House Democrat.
