Tennessee Governor Bill Lee Acknowledging President-Elect Joe Biden

Tennessee Republican Governor Bill Lee says his administration has begun working with Democratic President-elect Joe Biden’s transition team, making his first public acknowledgement that Biden will be the next president.

Lee says he spoke with members of the team about Tennessee’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The governor was among many Republicans nationwide who refused to acknowledge Biden’s win as President Donald Trump continuously repeated unfounded claims of election fraud.

Those claims sparked a violent siege of the Capitol by Trump supporters Wednesday that left five people dead and delayed for hours congressional action to validate Biden’s win in November. Lee, Blackburn and Hagerty have been strong supporters of the president in a state that voted for him twice by big margins. All three have echoed widespread condemnation of the deadly riots.
