Some 2020 Dems work with the GOP more than you might think

Combined Shape

WASHINGTON (AP) — Elizabeth Warren has a habit that she doesn’t talk about a lot on the campaign trail: working with the GOP.

The Massachusetts Democrat is running for the White House as a liberal. But she’s partnered with at least one Republican on 39% of the bills she’s introduced as chief sponsor since becoming a senator. That’s according to an Associated Press analysis using GovTrack, an independent clearinghouse for congressional data.

Her share of bills with Republican support is closer to Amy Klobuchar, the Minnesota Democrat who’s made bipartisanship a theme of her 2020 campaign, than to Bernie Sanders.

In a closely divided nation where presidential elections are often narrowly won, a record of bipartisanship could be an asset for any Democrat seeking support from moderate voters.
