NASHVILLE, Tenn. — U.S. Sen. Lamar Alexander says the Trump administration should aid President-elect Joe Biden in his transition.

In a statement Friday, the retiring Tennessee Republican said Trump’s team should provide all transition materials, resources and meetings needed to ensure a smooth transition, especially on COVID-19 vaccine distribution.

Alexander said he hopes the loser of the election will follow Al Gore’s example from 2000 by putting the country first, congratulating the winner and helping him to a good start.

He also said recounts and resolving disputes after a close election are not unprecedented and should reassure Americans that the results are valid.
