President Donald Trump’s campaign has paid $3 million for a partial Wisconsin recount in Dane and Milwaukee counties. The campaign said in a statement they had paid for the recounts Tuesday night and planned to submit the required paperwork on Wednesday.
The two counties in question reportedly voted overwhelmingly for Joe Biden. The two counties are known for being reliable Democratic strongholds. Milwaukee County is the biggest in the state and the most populous black county. Dane County, the third largest in the state, contains Wisconsin’s liberal capital city of Madison and the leftist University of Wisconsin-Madison.
“These two counties were selected because they are the locations of the worst irregularities,” said the Trump campaign in a statement, noting that they were areas where there were “illegally altered absentee ballots, illegally issued absentee ballots, and illegal advice given by government officials allowing Wisconsin’s Voter ID laws to be circumvented.”
The Trump campaign believes voters skirted Wisconsin’s photo ID requirement
