President Donald Trump To Request Recount In Wisconsin

Election Day came and went as many expected. Republican strongholds like Kentucky, Indiana and Alabama issued votes in support of President Donald Trump. Meanwhile, many Democratic strongholds like New York and California expressed their approval of former Vice President Joe Biden. Despite millions of ballots being counted and projections being offered by network analysts, it is still unclear who the next President of the United States will be.

One of the states that will play a major role in deciding the presidential election is Wisconsin. On November 3, control of the state bounced back and forth between the two parties throughout the night. As ballots are still being counted in the Badger State, the Trump campaign has indicated that they will ask for a recount.

“There have been reports of irregularities in several Wisconsin counties which raise serious doubts about the validity of the results. The President is well within the threshold to request a recount and we will immediately do so,” Trump Campaign Manager Bill Stepien stated.

Trump has had faced stiff competition in Wisconsin in the past. In 2016, he barely won the state with less than a 30,000 vote advantage over former Sen. Hilary Clinton. This November, Biden holds an estimated 200,000 vote lead in Wisconsin. The state holds 10 electoral votes that could very well swing the election. Thus far, no major network has called the state and Wisconsin officials have cautioned politicians from making any proclamations regarding the state as of yet.
