According to GovTrack.us, an organization tracking U.S. Congress and information on lawmakers and their voting records, which touts itself as “one of the oldest government transparency websites in the world,” said Harris, D-Calif., was “ranked most liberal compared to All Senators” in 2019.
The group's analysis was based on senators’ “legislative behavior by how similar the pattern of bills and resolutions they cosponsor are to other Members of Congress,” according to its website.
"The score can be interpreted as a conservative-liberal scale, although of course it only takes into account a small aspect of reality," the website stated.
The scorecard put Harris as "most liberal," with Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., ranking as second most liberal, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., ranking as third most liberal, and Sen. Jeff Merkley, D-Ore., ranking fourth most liberal.
Meanwhile, the tracker ranked Sen. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., as the most conservative senator, with Sens. Joni Ernst, R-Iowa, Mike Braun, R-Ind., and Ted Cruz, R-Texas, to follow.
The analysis also showed that in 2019, Harris joined bipartisan legislation “the least often compared to Senate Democrats.”
