Alexander Statement on the Election

Posted on November 9, 2016

NASHVILLE, Nov. 9, 2016 - U.S. Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) issued the following statement today:

“Congratulations to President-elect Trump. The election belongs to the people and the people have voted for change. Donald Trump is the agent for that change. Now it is the responsibility of the President-elect and the Congress to work together to address the voices of anger and despair, and of hope, that we heard yesterday. This includes reducing Washington’s role in our lives, making it easier to find a good job and less expensive health care, and making our system more fair. It’s time to put the election behind us. The way to make change and move our country in the right direction is to work together to bring out the best in all of us.”
