President-elect Joe Biden picked up 132 more votes after an election recount in Milwaukee County, among the two places in Wisconsin that President Trump spent $3 million to force a recount.
In Dane County, another Democratic stronghold, votes are still being tallied in a count expected to last into the weekend, but Trump has gained 68 votes over Biden so far.
Trump is gearing up for yet another legal battle, this time to toss tens of thousands of ballots in the state that Biden clinched by nearly 20,600 votes, with margins in Milwaukee and Dane counties about 2-to-1 for the Democrat.
The Milwaukee County vote totals increased for both candidates after election officials found several hundred uncounted ballots earlier this week. Claire Woodall-Vogg, the chief election official for the city of Milwaukee, attributed it to “human error.”
“I promised this would be a transparent and fair process, and it was,” Milwaukee County Clerk George Christenson said.
