GOP Sen. Murkowski calls on Trump to admit defeat

Republican Senator from Alaska Lisa Murkowski urged United States President Donald Trump to concede the election and allow Joe Biden to begin the transition process.

Murkowski called Trump's attempts to challenge the legality of the vote "without merit" and called the "pressure campaign on state legislators to influence" the electoral outcome "inconsistent" with the American democratic process. "It's time to begin the full and formal transition period," she added.

Several GOP officials, including Utah Senator Mitt Romney and Maryland Governor Larry Hogan already slammed Trump for refusing to acknowledge Biden as the winner of the election.
