Hillary campaign 'seeks volunteers' to 'help' with Stein's recount
After launching her recount effort in three states with a goal of raising $2.5 million, Green Party candidate Jill Stein has her sights set on $9.5 million, nearly twice the amount she raised during her presidential campaign.
Stein, who has brought in $6.7 million so far through her recount website, is funding, with the participation now of the Hillary Clinton campaign, a recount in Wisconsin scheduled to begin Thursday and one in Michigan that could commence Friday.
In Pennsylvania, she’s facing legal opposition.
A Montgomery County Court judge on Wednesday rejected Stein’s petition to recanvass votes in 72 of the county’s 425 precincts, Philly.com reported.
In Philadelphia, the Board of Elections announced it would meet Thursday morning to review petitions for recounts in 82 of its 1,686 divisions and determine which divisions would be reexamined.
Two top Pennsylvania Democrats, however, have called the recount effort a waste of resources.
