Does Yvette Herrell Support the President’s Decision to Not Attend President-elect Biden’s Inauguration?

In another blow to the peaceful transition of power, this morning, President Trump tweeted that he would not attend President-elect Joe Biden’s Inauguration on January 20th. A tradition that has been carried out by all but three Presidents in the history of the United States.  This would be the first time since 1869 this tradition has not been honored.  This comes after a violent mob, incited by the rhetoric and election misinformation of President Trump and his allies, Rep. Yvette Herrell included, stormed the U.S. Capitol resulting in the death of a U.S. Capitol Police Officer.

‚ÄúOur country needs its elected leaders, especially Republicans, to step up and support a peaceful transition of power,‚ÄĚ said DPNM Communications Director Miranda van Dijk. ‚ÄúWill Yvette Herrell do what‚Äôs right, and call on President Trump to reverse his decision and attend President-elect Biden‚Äôs inauguration?¬† If her lack of leadership and cowardice this week is any indication, my guess is not, but New Mexicans need her to speak out.‚ÄĚ

Already this week, Rep. Yvette Herrell, voted not once, but twice, to oppose a peaceful transition power by objecting to the certification of this election just hours after the violent mob stormed the U.S. Capitol.
