Wisconsin's two largest counties have finished a recount of presidential ballots requested by the Trump campaign. The latest tallies in Milwaukee and Dane counties reaffirmed President-elect Joe Biden's victory in the state. All told, Biden had a net gain of 87 votes, though both candidates picked up votes. The recounts were not expected to alter the results significantly, since Biden won Wisconsin by around 20,000 votes, a margin far greater than the change seen in most recounts. The Wisconsin Election Commission is scheduled to meet Tuesday when the chair of the six-member panel, who is a Democrat, will certify the vote. The Trump campaign has said it will continue to pursue legal challenges in Wisconsin, but time is not on their side, and they would have to flip multiple states to overturn the national results. Wisconsin has 16 electoral votes, and Biden has won 306.
