Biography

Sen. Cynthia Lummis serves as the junior senator from the state of Wyoming. 

Despite previously acknowledging the legitimacy of Joe Biden’s victory, saying that “some states clearly have a lot of work to do to clean up their elections but the Electoral College is above the fray that played out in certain states,” Sen. Lummis quickly flipped to opposing certification of the Electoral College votes. To justify her move to discount the will of millions of voters, she stated that she was “deeply concerned that the electoral votes of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania were not ‘regularly given’ under Pennsylvania law.” 

Sen. Lummis also neglected to hold Donald Trump accountable for his incitement of the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol. She denounced having to participate in his impeachment trial, saying “we spent a week on a political sideshow to which we already knew the ending (acquittal).”
