Two Wisconsin counties will kick off recounts of presidential election results on Friday morning. The Trump campaign has paid $3 million for the process but chose to target only the state’s two most Democratic-leaning counties for the recount, Milwaukee and Dane County, home to Madison.

More than 804,000 ballots were cast for president in the two counties of the 3.24 million votes cast in Wisconsin. Biden leads President Trump by more than 20,000 in Wisconsin. The two counties must complete the process by Dec. 1, but Milwaukee officials have said they hope to wrap up by Wednesday.

In a statement, the Trump campaign alleged that the state’s election commission had “repeatedly failed to follow the law” leading up to the election and said they were “confident that when all of the legal ballots are counted and illegal ballots are not counted, President Trump will be proven the winner” in the state.
