Lummis only Wyoming delegate to object to electoral college results

U.S. Sen. Cynthia Lummis, R-Wyo., objected to counting Pennsylvania’s Electoral College votes hours after a violent mob supporting President Donald Trump stormed the U.S. Capitol, causing significant damage, leading members of the U.S. Congress to seek shelter and delaying the certification of President-elect Joe Biden’s November victory by nearly six hours.


Lummis, sworn in Jan. 3 to replace now-retired Wyoming Sen. Mike Enzi, was the only member of Wyoming’s congressional delegation to support either of the two objections the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives considered. Sen. John Barrasso and Rep. Liz Cheney, both Republicans, both voted against objections to Electoral College results in Pennsylvania and Arizona.
