A recount in Wisconsin demanded by U.S. President Donald Trump’s election campaign increased President-elect Joe Biden’s margin.
After the recount in Milwaukee County, Biden had a net gain of 132 votes, out of nearly 460,000 casts. Overall, Biden gained 257 votes to Trump’s 125.
“The recount demonstrates what we already know: that elections in Milwaukee County are fair, transparent, accurate, and secure,” Milwaukee County Clerk George Christenson said.
Trump’s campaign demanded recounts in two of Wisconsin’s most populous counties, after losing Wisconsin to Biden by over 20,000 votes.
