WASHINGTON — Senator Lamar Alexander has run in elite national political circles for decades, sought the presidency twice and served as governor of Tennessee, cabinet secretary and university president. He does not know Donald J. Trump.
“Never met him,” said Mr. Alexander, a Tennessee Republican now in his third term.
