WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump's refusal to concede electoral defeat has Republican Senate allies slowly inching toward acceptance that Joe Biden will be the next president.
“We’re going to have an orderly transfer from this administration to the next one,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., told reporters on Tuesday.
And some Republican lawmakers have echoed those concerns, but few have called for Trump's administration to allow the transition to start.
It's an awkward dance for senators like Tillis and Graham, who won their races on the same ballot as Trump and aren’t contesting the result.
I think we're going to be just fine in Georgia,” said Sen. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., a staunch Trump ally.
