WILMINGTON, Del. (Reuters) - U.S. President-elect Joe Biden said on Tuesday he had spoken with Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell and the two of them agreed to get together soon.

“While we disagree on a lot of things, there are things we can work together on,” Biden told reporters. “We agreed to get together sooner (rather) than later.”
