Trump Pays $3 Million for a Partial Wisconsin Recount
On Wednesday, the Wisconsin Elections Commission announced that President Trump has paid $3 million for a partial recount. A statewide recount would cost $7.9 million.
The Trump campaign has not specified which counties it wishes to recount but says it will submit the petition by the 5 PM deadline.
Biden won Wisconsin by a margin of 20,608 votes. The Trump campaign has made multiple claims of voter fraud and irregularities and hopes that the recount will overcome that margin.
The state’s top elections officials have said there are no substantial reports of widespread problems or irregularities.
