Quorum Analytics has released a new report ranking Senator Doug Jones among the most bipartisan members of the United States Senate. The report analyzed the bipartisan actions taken by Members of Congress so far in the 116th Congress. Of the bills Senator Jones has cosponsored this year, 47 percent are led by a Republican.
“Bipartisanship means more than simply reaching across the political aisle; it means finding common ground,” Jones said. “I have always believed that in Alabama, and in America, we have far more in common than we have that divides us.”
“As a United States Senator, I’ve taken that approach to a number of important issues that impact our people every day – issues like health care, education, jobs, ensuring that we have the strongest possible national defense, and so many others,” Jones said. “That is reflected in the strong bipartisan record my team and I have built in the Senate. If we can set aside the divisive partisan politics, we can work together and actually get things done.”
Only two other Democrats scored higher than Jones. Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ), and Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) had more bills cosponsored by republicans, with Sinema having 58 percent and Manchin having 51 percent.
