Green Party's Stein to seek Wisconsin recount

Posted: Updated:
(AP) -
A local party official says Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein will seek a recount in Wisconsin.
   George Martin is a member of the state Green Party's coordinating council. Martin says Stein's campaign will file the request by the state's 5 p.m. Friday deadline.
   President-elect Donald Trump won Wisconsin and Pennsylvania by narrow margins and has a small lead in Michigan.
   Under Wisconsin law, Stein's campaign must show a basis for the recount in that state and cover costs. Stein has said she's concerned voting systems in the three states may have been hacked. Her campaign estimates a Wisconsin recount will cost $1.1 million.
   As of Friday morning, Stein's campaign had raised $4.8 million to seek recounts in all three states.
