Cynthia Lummis

Only recently being sworn in as a senator on January 3, 2021, like with her Mississippian counterpart Cindy Hyde-Smith, Lummis has the distinction of being the first woman to represent Wyoming in the Senate, and again like Hyde-Smith, she would also contest the validity of Biden’s victory.

In the same month she took her seat in the Senate she joined a group of Republican senators led by Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley looking to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election.

She would vote in support of the objection to Pennsylvania’s electoral votes but against the objection to Arizona’s, when the objections were put to the Senate floor for a vote, both were soundly defeated 92–7 and 93–6 respectively.

Strangely, despite her joining the group that contested Biden’s election victory when it came to confirming his Cabinet nominees, she voted to confirm nine of them.
