U.S. Sen. Cynthia Lummis celebrated the peaceful transition of power that came Wednesday with President Joe Biden’s inauguration by calling for Wyoming citizens to pray for the country and the new president.
In a post on Twitter as Biden prepared to take the oath of office, Lummis pointed to the difficulties faced by the new president.
“Our nation & state face significant challenges right now and I’m ready to get to work,” Lummis wrote in a tweet on Wednesday morning. “I urge all WY citizens to join me in praying for our nation & our President. #InaugurationDay“
Lummis is the first of Wyoming’s Congressional delegation to speak about Biden’s inauguration or the new administration.
One month ago, Fox News host Chris Wallace pressed U.S. Sen. John Barrasso on whether or not Biden had actually been elected to the highest position of power, which the senator confirmed he had.
Lummis hasn’t been a fan of the new president or Vice President Kamala Harris and even voted to contest the results of votes from certain states just hours after a mob stormed the U.S. Capitol earlier this month.
