Statement from Senator Cynthia Lummis on Electoral College certification vote

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Cynthia Lummis (R-WY) released the following statement on today’s certification of the Electoral College votes:

“I have serious concerns about election integrity, especially in Pennsylvania, and expressed some of them in a written statement to the Senate. But today’s sickening, un-American attack on the U.S. Capitol overshadowed that debate.

“Congress cannot fix problems with election integrity, only states can fix these problems. But Congress can investigate those problems and raise awareness. The allegations of fraud during this election were unprecedented, and left millions of Americans concerned that their votes don’t count. Discussions of election integrity must occur and I will seek another forum to continue that discussion.”
