WASHINGTON – The results of the Lugar/McCourt Bipartisan Index through the 2017-18 term of Congress are out.
Indiana’s former Senator Joe Donnelly ranks third in lifetime scores, with current Senator Todd Young ranking fourth.
The higher the ranking the more bipartisan a senator is thought to be. The index is based on bill sponsorships and co-sponsorships.
The index rates 250 Senators who served between 1993 and last year. Indiana’s other Senator, Mike Braun, began his term this year and will be ranked in next year’s index.
Indiana’s Richard Lugar, for whom the index is named, was ranked 29th on the lifetime score. Lugar died in April.
Among Senators currently running for President, Joe Biden ranks as most bipartisan at 47th. Kamala Harris and Bernie Sanders ranked the least bipartisan at 246th and 247th, respectively.
