Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) said on Friday that President-elect Joe Biden should be given access to transition resources, something he currently doesn’t have because the General Services Administration hasn’t certified him as the winner of the presidential election.

“If there is any chance whatsoever that Joe Biden will be the next president, and it looks like he has a very good chance, the Trump Administration should provide the Biden team with all transition materials, resources, and meetings necessary,” Alexander, a longtime ally of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), said in a statement.

Alexander added that the need to share information with Biden’s team “especially should be true” on the plan to distribute an eventual vaccine for the coronavirus.
