Report: Trump Campaign To File for Recount in ‘Key’ Wisconsin Counties

Publisher's Note: This post appears here courtesy of the The Daily Wire. The author of this post is Tim Pearce.

    The Trump campaign is filing for a partial recount of votes in Wisconsin on Wednesday, according to Fox News.

    Fox News White House correspondent John Roberts broke the news on Wednesday morning, posting on Twitter that "the [Trump] Campaign will be filing for a recount in the state of Wisconsin today." Roberts followed up his initial post with another clarifying that the campaign is pushing for a "partial recount in several key counties."

    Outlets called the state's presidential race for Democratic candidate Joe Biden, who currently leads President Donald Trump by roughly 20,000 votes in the state, according to Fox News. Trump has not yet conceded the race as his campaign continues to pursue litigation over alleged voter fraud and unfair election practices in states such as Pennsylvania and Michigan.

    Trump vowed to continue litigating the presidential race after several outlets called the race for Biden on Nov. 7. The president's campaign issued a defiant statement asserting that the race is far from over despite what the media's projections showed.

    "We all know why Joe Biden is rushing to falsely pose as the winner, and why his media allies are trying so hard to help him: they don't want the truth to be exposed. The simple fact is this election is far from over," the campaign said in a statement. "Joe Biden has not been certified as the winner of any states, let alone any of the highly contested states headed for mandatory recounts, or states where our campaign has valid and legitimate legal challenges that could determine the ultimate victor."

    So far, Georgia is the only state in which Trump is pursuing legal challenges to initiate a recount. The recount has turned up thousands of previously uncounted votes with the majority favoring Trump and cutting Biden's lead in the state by hundreds of votes. Former Vice President Biden maintains a nearly 13,000-vote lead over Trump.

    Republicans have ratcheted up pressure on Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger to resign amid the election mishaps. On Nov. 9, both of Georgia's GOP senators, Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue, said Raffensperger should resign over the state's 2020 election.

    "The Secretary of State has failed to deliver honest and transparent elections. He has failed the people of Georgia, and he should step down immediately," Loeffler and Perdue said in a joint statement.

    Raffensperger hit back at the senators in his own statement, saying, "That is not going to happen. The voters of Georgia hired me, and the voters will be the one to fire me."

    Trump has weighed in on the election process in battleground states. On Wednesday morning he attacked the process in Georgia.

    "The Georgia recount is a joke and is being done UNDER PROTEST. Even though thousands of fraudulent votes have been found, the real number is in matching signatures. Governor must open up the unconstitutional Consent Decree and call in the Legislature!" Trump tweeted.
