Wisconsin recount would cost Trump campaign $7.9 million

Election officials count absentee ballots in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

The president lost to the incumbent in Wisconsin To Joe Biden With 20,000 votes. In Wisconsin, the difference between Trump and Biden is 0.7 percentage points.

A coalition of Trump administration officials and election officials from across the country recently put out a statement saying the 2020 presidential election was "the most secure in American history".

The Trump campaign still has one allegation remaining in the aforementioned lawsuit.

But most experts believe that the margins are simply too big - and Trump has never been able to produce evidence of widespread voter fraud to match his rhetoric. The state has said there were not enough ballots at issue in those suits to change the outcome of the race.

Election officials from both parties have said there is no evidence of major irregularities, and federal election security officials have decried "unfounded claims" and expressed "utmost confidence" in the election's integrity.

Replacing her is Marc Scaringi, a Harrisburg-area lawyer who volunteered on Trump's 2016 campaign, is a conservative activist who hosts a radio talk show and ran unsuccessfully for the U.S. Senate in 2012. Law firm Porter Wright Morris & Arthur LLP, which had faced public criticism for its role in the case, withdrew from the representation on Friday.

According to the newspaper, the lawyers did not say the reasons for the withdrawal. He has repeatedly repeated allegations of electoral fraud. The president's campaign's lawsuit claims counties' inconsistent practices violated constitutional rights of due process and equal protection under the law and resulted in the "unlawful dilution or debasement" of properly cast votes. He and other Republicans have made baseless claims of fraud and irregularities in the Wisconsin election, but the state's top elections chief and local officials have said there were no reports of widespread problems or wrongdoing.

Federal suits are still working their way through courts in MI, in Georgia, and in Pennsylvania, where a judge in Williamsport is expected to hold a hearing on Tuesday. "The goal should be making sure every vote counts". But a similar state court suit by allies of the Trump campaign was rejected on Friday by a judge who found the affidavits of poll watchers to be "not credible" and "rife with speculation and guesswork about sinister motives".

The Milwaukee County Board of Election Commissioners met as a County Board of Canvassers to certify the results of the November 3 election at 9 a.m. on Monday. The recount resulted in a net gain of about 131 votes for Trump, who won the state by fewer than 23,000 votes in 2016.

Rather than calling hundreds of thousands of ballots into question, the revised suit instead claims Trump was harmed because counties allowed voters to fix errors on their mail ballots. Several heavily Democratic counties allowed voters to "cure" otherwise disqualified mail-in ballots, such as when a ballot was missing a signature.
