“After recount in 2011 race for WI Supreme Court, there was a swing of 300 votes,” Walker, a Trump ally, tweeted. “After recount in 2016 Presidential race in WI, @realDonaldTrump numbers went up by 131. As I said, 20,000 is a high hurdle.”

According to The Associated Press, Biden leads in Wisconsin, a key swing state in both candidates’ path to 270 electoral votes, by about 20,000 votes, or just under 1 percentage, with 97 percent of precincts reporting.
