Recognized by a leading research institute, Senator Steve Daines, R-Mont., has one of the top records of bipartisanship in the Senate.

“Montanans expect their representatives to work across the aisle to do what’s right for our state and our country,” Daines said. “Some folks in Washington are only concerned about toeing the party line and doing what will secure them re-election. It doesn’t matter to me if you have an ‘R’ or a ‘D’ behind your name – if you have good ideas that help grow jobs, reduce regulatory burdens facing hardworking families, or make our government more efficient, I am happy to roll up my sleeves and work together to get things done.”

The Lugar Center and the Georgetown University McCourt School of Public Policy recognized Daines in its Bipartisan Index as having one of the strongest record of working across the aisle in the Senate. Daines ranked 13th for bipartisanship among his Senate colleagues.
