Ohio’s GOP Gov. Mike DeWine said Sunday President Donald Trump can pursue legal avenues about the election vote tally, but that a “normal transition” process should now begin with President-elect Joe Biden.

In an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union,” DeWine said Trump “has every right to go into court, every right to bring any kind of evidence that he has and no one should begrudge him or say that there is anything irregular about that.”

But, DeWine said, “it's clear that certainly based on what we know now, that Joe Biden is the president-elect.”

“For the country's sake, it's important for a normal transition to start,” he said even as Trump goes “on his other track, the legal track…  and we should respect that, but we also need to begin that process.”

According to DeWine, the coronavirus is “rolling through” the state, though he denied hospitals have been overwhelmed — and said Ohio has to “tough it out” until vaccine comes in December.

“Once in the community and widespread, it will eventually get into that nursing home.,” he said, adding the spread is “threatening” the continued in-person learning in Ohio schools.

“We have to pull back because enough bus drivers or teachers that need to be quarantined. These are things that are naturally starting to happen,” he said of the virus spread. Each one of us sick of this and tired of it.”

But DeWine said, people have to wear a mask to continue “keeping our kids in school and … protecting our elderly and …our hospitals.”

“The good news is …vaccine is coming.… it's coming in December,” the governor said. “And so we can see the end of this. We just have to tough it out."
