President-elect Joe Biden won the crucial battleground state in the Nov. 3 election by a 0.7 percentage point margin, or roughly 20,000 votes, with 99% of the ballots counted, according to Edison Research.
Trump has yet to concede in the race and is filing legal challenges to the result.
“The legal team continues to review the irregularities issues in Wisconsin and leaves all legal options open, including a recount and audit,” Trump 2020 legal counsel Jenna Ellis said when asked. asked if the campaign was moving forward with a petition for a recount.

Wisconsin chief electoral officer Meagan Wolfe said in a statement that county clerks had, as required by law, carefully estimated the costs of recounting Wisconsin’s 3.2 million ballots.
“We still haven’t received any indication whether or not there will be a recount,” Wolfe said.

Since Biden, a Democrat, won the election, the Republican president has refused to concede and has repeatedly asserted, without evidence, that there was widespread voter fraud.
Election officials from both parties said there was no evidence of major irregularities, and federal election security officials denounced “unsubstantiated allegations” and expressed “the utmost confidence” in the integrity of the election.
Biden leads Trump by a 290-232 margin in the state-by-state electoral college, with Georgia’s 16 votes due after a recount. Biden was expected to hold a narrow lead in the southern state when the secretary of state ordered the audit last week.
