US Election 2020 LIVE Updates: What time are election results?

Trump campaign manager Bill Stepien on Wednesday said the campaign will “immediately” request a recount in Wisconsin.

“The President is well within the threshold to request a recount and we will immediately do so,” he said.

As it stands, Biden holds a lead of more than 20,000 votes over Trump in Wisconsin with virtually all of the vote having been reported.

Wisconsin election law allows for candidates to request a recount if the margin in the race is 1 percent or less. Biden is currently up by 0.6 points over Trump.

But former Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, a Republican, warned thatt the effort be futile.

“After recount in 2011 race for WI Supreme Court, there was a swing of 300 votes,” Walker tweeted. “After recount in 2016 Presidential race in WI, @realDonaldTrump numbers went up by 131. As I said, 20,000 is a high hurdle.”
