Breaking tonight from Andrew Hitt, the Chairman of the Republican Party of Wisconsin:
“The Wisconsin Elections Commission, after seeing President Trump’s recount petition and objections, is trying to change the recount manual at an emergency meeting tonight at 6 pm to make objections harder to make,” Hitt said.
“This must be stopped.” he added.
As reported earlier, the Trump campaign announced Wednesday that it has filed for a recount in two Wisconsin counties, Milwaukee and Dane.
The campaign said it paid a three million dollar filing fee for the recount in the two counties, which the state has acknowledged receiving. A statewide recount would cost about $7.9 million.
The deadline for filing is 5 p.m. Wednesday.
Now Wisconsin elections officials are trying to change the recount manual at the last minute to make it harder for Trump’s legal team to make objections!
