November 18, 2020
MADISON, Wis. – President Donald Trump's campaign would have to pay nearly $8 million to start a recount in Wisconsin, a state he narrowly lost two weeks ago.
Trump will have to decide by Wednesday whether to carry through with the recount he has promised to pursue.
If his campaign pays the $7.9 million cost up front, the recount will begin as soon as Thursday and be complete by Dec. 1, according to the state Elections Commission.
