Trump To Make Wisconsin Visit On Last Day Of Recount

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — President-elect Donald Trump is planning a return visit to Wisconsin next week on the day an election recount must be done.

Trump has scheduled a stop on Tuesday night at the Wisconsin State Fair Exposition Center in West Allis. Vice president-elect Mike Pence was also scheduled to join him.

Trump has been traveling around the country holding rallies as part of what he’s dubbing his “thank you” tour.

Trump won Wisconsin by about 22,000 votes, becoming the first Republican presidential candidate to win the state since 1984. Trump’s visit is on the same day Wisconsin must certify the election results.

A recount requested by Green Party candidate Jill Stein is ongoing and so far few votes have changed.
