Trump Wins — Wisconsin Agrees to Examine 800,000 Ballots

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The Wis­con­sin Elec­tions Com­mis­sion issued an order Thurs­day to recount more than 800,000 bal­lots cast in two heav­i­ly lib­er­al coun­ties at Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump’s request.

The order, required by law after Trump paid $3 mil­lion for the recount, was agreed to after ran­corous debate for more than five hours Wednes­day night that fore­shad­ows the par­ti­san bat­tle ahead.

“It’s just remark­able the six of us in a civ­i­lized fash­ion can’t agree to this stuff,” Demo­c­ra­t­ic com­mis­sion­er Mark Thom­sen said hours into the debate. The com­mis­sion is split 3–3 between Democ­rats and Republicans.

The recounts in Mil­wau­kee and Dane coun­ties, where Joe Biden out­polled Trump by a more than 2‑to‑1 mar­gin, will begin Fri­day and must be done by Dec. 1. Biden won statewide by 20,608 votes. Trump’s cam­paign has cit­ed “irreg­u­lar­i­ties” in the coun­ties, although no evi­dence of ille­gal activ­i­ty has been presented.
