Dean’s bipartisan leadership lights the path to an optimistic future.
Dean leads the way.
Dean keeps his Congressional achievements quiet—choosing, instead, to remain focused on creating positive change and restoring our faith in government.
We’re inclined to shout Dean’s bridge-building accomplishments from the rooftops, however. We know his work is necessary to achieve progress on the issues we care about most.
Honored for bridging political divides.
Dean has always believed that the thoughtful way forward is to build a bigger tent—that America is served best when Republicans, Democrats, and the private sector work together. Dean walks the talk.
Twice awarded the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Jefferson – Hamilton Award for Bipartisanship.
1 out of every 3 bills Dean cosponsored was introduced by a Republican.
Ranked the 13th most bipartisan member of the U.S. House, and the 12th most bipartisan House Democrat by The Lugar Center.
Awarded the highest Common Ground Score by the non-partisan Common Ground Committee.
Built overwhelming bipartisan support for small business relief.
In a deeply polarized Congress, Dean’s Paycheck Protection Program Flexibility Act (PPPFA) received near-unanimous support on both sides of the aisle—and it was signed into law by a Republican president.
Dean’s bipartisan approach to saving jobs and small businesses earned the endorsement of both business leaders and labor unions.
Dean was named a 2022 Fiscal Hero.
Distinguishing himself as a leading voice on fiscal responsibility, Dean was one of just seven House Democrats named a 2022 Fiscal Hero by The Campaign to Fix the Debt.
Setting a new tone with the Problem Solvers Caucus.
Generous listening. Open dialogue. Relationship-building. Dean understands this is the fertile soil in which meaningful solutions can grow.
It’s why he’s a member of the Problem Solvers Caucus—a bipartisan group of legislators made up of 28 Republicans and 28 Democrats who are committed to depolarizing Congress and creating positive change that will uplift the American people.
Breaking the gridlock.
Dean and the Problem Solvers Caucus successfully changed House Rules to ensure that every bill that earns 290 cosponsors is prioritized for consideration on the House Floor, ending the ability of House Speakers from any party to block policy that has broad bipartisan support.
Honored as a supporter of farmers.
Dean joins eight Republican and Democratic members of Minnesota’s congressional delegation in being recognized as a “Friend of Farm Bureau” by the American Farm Bureau Federation.
