Wisconsin Will Charge The Trump Campaign $7.9 Million For A Recount


Wisconsin will let the Trump campaign get a recount in the state but it will cost $7.9 million and the decision will have to be made quickly as to whether or not the campaign can get the recount. The Trump campaign will have to foot the bill quickly if they want to see a recount in the state. More from The Daily Wire:


The cost estimate was derived from information submitted by the 72 counties of the state; the total cost was roughly quadruple what the state’s recount cost in 2016. Election officials explained that the higher cost was due to expenses that would be incurred because of COVID19.


Meagan Wolfe, the state’s chief election official, said, “We still have not received any indication that there will or will not be a recount. But we want Wisconsin’s voters to know we are ready.” She said the additional costs incurred by the pandemic could include less time, as the Thanksgiving weekend approaches, larger spaces so public observation would not be inhibited, security for the larger spaces, more absentee ballots to be counted, and renting high-speed ballot scanning equipment.


“As of midday Monday, 68 of 72 counties had completed certification of the vote. Those results, which include provisional ballots that were counted after Election Day, show that Biden picked up 122 votes and Trump gained 107 statewide so far. The net gain was 15 for Biden,” the Daily Mail reported.


With the election being far from over despite it having taken place almost two weeks ago, measures like this are essential for Trump to pull an upset. The media has declared victory for Biden despite the fact that several states are being contested and Trump has not conceded.
