Gov. Mark Gordon followed in the footsteps of other elected Wyoming officials on Wednesday morning, congratulating new President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris in a post on Twitter.
“Congratulations to President Biden and Vice President Harris on their inauguration,” he wrote. “I look forward to working with you on the important issues facing our nation, the West and Wyoming.”
The governor added that he and First Lady Jennie Gordon would be praying for the United States and the success of Biden’s administration, echoing sentiments from U.S. Sen. Cynthia Lummis in her remarks about the new president.
“Luke 12:48 says, ‘From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked,'” Gordon wrote in a second tweet.
Gordon, Lummis and U.S. Rep. Liz Cheney all sent good wishes to the Biden administration Wednesday morning.
It should be noted that the governor didn’t congratulate Biden on his win in the presidential election in November, but also didn’t sign onto a multi-state lawsuit that contested many of the ballots cast in the election.
