Governor Gordon speaks out against Capitol siege by pro-Trump protestors

WYOMING — Wyoming Governor Mark Gordon joined other Wyoming politicians to speak out against today’s siege of the U.S Capitol by pro-Trump protestors.

In a Facebook post Wednesday afternoon Gordon states, “the violence that we are witnessing in the U.S. Capitol dishonors our legacy and denigrates the ‘Shining City on the Hill’ Ronald Reagan spoke of.”

Though he doesn’t condemn the President for his response to the protests, he does share his thoughts regarding the President’s unwillingness to concede. “Interfering with the peaceful transfer of power is an affront to the very Constitution that has made our country what it is,” he writes.

“I believe America will not—cannot—stand for this assault on our democracy. I am heartbroken.”
