Rep. Delgado Named Eighth-Most Bipartisan Member of the House of Representatives by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce
WASHINGTON – U.S. Representative Antonio Delgado (NY-19) was recognized by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce as the eighth-most bipartisan member of the House of Representatives for his work during the 116th Congress. This ranking puts Rep. Delgado within the top two percent of members. Since 1965, the U.S. Chamber has rated senators and members of Congress based on the votes they have cast for or against business priorities. Beginning with the 2019 legislative year, the U.S. Chamber included measures of bipartisanship in their congressional scorecard.
“I'm proud of my work to reach across the aisle and deliver for upstate families, farmers, small businesses, and veterans,” said Rep. Delgado. “Now more than ever, we must work together as Democrats and Republicans to help our nation recover from the pandemic and build back better.”
Rep. Delgado was also twice awarded the Jefferson–Hamilton Award for Bipartisanship by the U.S. Chamber. The bipartisanship score is calculated on a ranking relative to a Member's performance compared to members of their own party. Rep. Antonio Delgado earned a 98%.
