President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign on Wednesday filed for a partial recount in Wisconsin to challenge President-elect Joe Biden’s victory in the state.
The campaign wired $3 million to Wisconsin election officials to cover the cost of the recount request, which officials are expected to approve and order Thursday.
Trump’s campaign said in a statement that it is requesting recounts in two heavily Democratic counties: Milwaukee, which includes the city of Milwaukee, and Dane, which contains the state’s capital of Madison.
The campaign claimed “illegal” voting activity was carried out by Wisconsin election officials, without providing evidence of any widespread problems that could upend Biden’s more than 20,000-vote lead.
