Supporters for Green Party presidential nominee Jill Stein have raised enough money to request a recount in the key swing state of Wisconsin, her campaign website announced on Thursday morning.
"Congratulations on meeting the recount costs for Wisconsin," the website said. "Raising money to pay for the first round so quickly is a miraculous feat and a tribute to the power of grassroots organizing." Wisconsin was a key battleground for President-elect Donald Trump in his victory in the U.S. presidential elections on November 8.
Stein's campaign, which has now reached its first goal of $2.5 million out of a total target of $4.5 million, also wants to request recounts in two other states where voting anomalies have been alleged: Pennsylvania and Michigan.
