Madison, Wis. (AP) – Wisconsin on Sunday completed its presidential results count, confirming Democrat Joe Biden’s victory over President Donald Trump in a key battlefield state. Trump has vowed to challenge the court results in court before the end of the recount.
Dane County is the second and last county to complete its recount, with Trump reportedly gaining 45 votes. Milwaukee County, the other largest and most liberal county in the state, reported its results Friday with a gain of 132 votes to Biden, targeting a recount paid by Trump.
The two counties won Biden’s victory margin by approximately 20,600 votes, with the winner gaining a net profit of 87 votes.
“As we have said, this recount only served to reaffirm Joe Biden’s success in Wisconsin,” Daniel Melphy, who led the Biden campaign in Wisconsin, told the Associated Press in a statement.
With no precedent for manipulating a result bigger than Biden, Trump was widely expected to go to court. After the recount is complete. His campaign challenged thousands of ballots during the recount, and before it was over, Trump tweeted that he would file a lawsuit against him.
“It’s not about finding mistakes in the Wisconsin recount count, it’s about finding people who voted illegally, and on Monday or Tuesday, that case will be brought up after the recount is over,” Trump tweeted Saturday. “We found a lot of illegal votes. Wait!”
Trump campaign officials did not immediately respond to the EP’s requests for Sunday’s campaign.
The last date to confirm the vote is Tuesday. The certification is chaired by the bipartisan Wisconsin Election Commission Democratic Chair.
The Wisconsin Voters’ Alliance, a traditional group, has already filed a lawsuit Against state election officials seeking to prevent verification of results. This makes many of the arguments that Trump is going to make. Govi Tony Evers lawyers have asked the state Supreme Court to dismiss the lawsuit. Evers, Democrat, called the complaint a “mishmash of legal distortions” that used factual misrepresentations in an attempt to take away the right to vote from millions of Wisconsin residents.
Another lawsuit filed over the weekend by Wisconsin resident Dean Mల్లెller argued that the ballots placed in the drop boxes were illegal and should not be counted.
Pro-Trump lawyers have complained Voters have identified themselves as “indefinitely limited” about absentee ballots, allowing them to cast absentee ballots without showing a photo ID; Ballots with a certification envelope with two different ink colors indicate that the poll worker will assist in completing it; And absentee ballots that do not have a separate written record for its request, such as individual absentee ballots.
Election officials in both counties counted the ballots during the recount, but identified them as demonstrations at the request of the Trump campaign.
The Trump campaign has already failed elsewhere in court Without evidence of widespread fraud, experts widely agree. Trump has failed legal challenges in Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada and Pennsylvania.
