Battleground Wisconsin certified Joe Biden’s victory Monday morning following a partial recount that added to his 20,600-vote margin over President Donald Trump, who has now promised to file a lawsuit seeking to cancel the results.
Gov. Tony Evers, a Democrat, signed a certificate to complete the process after the canvass report declared Biden as the winner following the recount, which was approved by the chairwoman of the bipartisan Wisconsin Elections Commission. Evers' signature was a part of the law and is typically a procedural step that receives little attention.
Evers said in a statement, “Today I carried out my duty to certify the November 3rd election.”
“I want to thank our clerks, election administrators, and poll workers across our state for working tirelessly to ensure we had a safe, fair, and efficient election. Thank you for all your good work,’’ he added
