Senator Joe Donnelly

Donnelly Recognized as Fourth-Most Bipartisan Senator by Lugar Center

Washington, D.C. – In its newest Bipartisan Index, the Lugar Center and the McCourt School of Public Policy at Georgetown University recognized U.S. Senator Joe Donnelly as the fourth-most bipartisan Senator, and the most bipartisan Democrat. The full Senate rankings are available here. Donnelly has a proven and consistent record of bipartisanship that has yielded successful results in advancing legislation on behalf of Hoosiers. His approach of working with Republican and Democratic colleagues has led to 18 of his measures being signed into law since President Trump was inaugurated and 40 measures signed into law since starting in the Senate in 2013. 

Donnelly said, “I’m the hired help for Hoosiers, and my focus every day isn’t on Democrat or Republican but on finding solutions and addressing issues important to Indiana. That’s how I have been successful in advancing and getting dozens of provisions signed into law on a range of issues, including to combat the opioid epidemic, improve mental health services for our law enforcement officers, and honor our Vietnam veterans. I will continue working to deliver results for Hoosiers by partnering with my colleagues in a bipartisan manner.” 

Recent examples of Donnelly’s successful bipartisanship include the following:

Last year the Lugar Center and McCourt School of Public Policy at Georgetown University recognized Donnelly as the second-most bipartisan Senator since 1993 and highest ranking Senator on the index currently serving in the Senate.
