Presidential election recount: Governor Scott Walker doesn’t expect vote changes
Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker says he doesn’t think the presidential recount ongoing in his state will result in any significant change in the results.
Donald Trump won Wisconsin by about 22,000 votes, or less than 1 percentage point, over Hillary Clinton. Green Party presidential nominee Jill Stein requested the recount which began on Thursday and has to be completed by Dec. 13.
Walker told reporters Friday that he assumes the results will be fairly similar once the recount is done. He says, “Anytime there’s a canvass or a recount there’s slight adjustments” but he doesn’t expect Trump’s margin of victory to change much.
Walker also says he’s open to changing Wisconsin law to prevent candidates like Stein who have no chance of winning in a recount to request one.
