President Donald Trump’s campaign manager said Wednesday that Trump plans to request a formal recount in Wisconsin.
A top election official there confirmed that nearly all the votes in the state have been counted, and NBC News currently has Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden leading Trump by more than 20,000 votes.
Four key battleground states — Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Michigan and Georgia — began Wednesday with tens of thousands of absentee ballots uncounted, leaving the White House race between President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden up in the air.
Election officials in some states called it a night and planned to resume the count in the morning, while some counties in Pennsylvania weren’t even to start tabulating their mail-in votes until later Wednesday morning.
In a nod to the importance of winning Pennsylvania in order to secure a second term, Trump will hold four rallies in the Keystone State on Saturday.
The president will then hold five rallies on Sunday, all in states he won in 2016 but where he is now on defense against Biden: Michigan, Iowa, North Carolina, Georgia and Florida.
Trump will hold five more rallies on Monday on the eve of Election Day. He will stop in North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, along with two events in Michigan. His final event will be in Grand Rapids, Mich., the same city where he held his final rally of the 2016 campaign.
Tuesday is shaping up as a busy day on the campaign trail, as President Trump plans to stage rallies in three states — Michigan, Wisconsin and Nebraska — and Democratic nominee Joe Biden is scheduled to hold a pair of events in Georgia, a state that Republicans have carried in every White House contest since 1996.

Biden returned to his native Pennsylvania for socially distanced drive-in rallies in Bucks County and Luzerne County, two areas crucial to winning the important state, where he hammered Trump for his irresponsible handling of the coronavirus pandemic. Meanwhile, Trump visited North Carolina, Ohio and Wisconsin, holding large in-person rallies where thousands of people crowded together without masks.
The Pennsylvania average shows Biden’s largest lead. The Democratic nominee averages 52% support to Trump’s 43% in polling conducted between September 20 and October 5. In both Wisconsin and Michigan, the averages show Biden with 51% support to 43% for Trump.

Yackel ordered the state to appear in court Monday to defend the order.
Biden also will meet with Blake’s father, Jacob Blake Sr., and other Blake family members during the visit, according to a family spokesperson and campaign official.
Aber wo sind Joe Biden und Kamala Harris? Mit ihren Videobotschaften werden sie nichts erreichen, wenn gleichzeitig die Fernsehbilder den Präsidenten mit beiden Beinen in den abgebrannten Ruinen zeigen.
Nicht umsonst war der Präsident nach Wisconsin gereist. In dem Swing State gilt es, möglicherweise wahlentscheidende Wählerstimmen zu sammeln.
Während des Präsidentenbesuchs blieb die Lage in der Stadt friedlich. Am Straßenrand hatten sich sowohl seine Anhänger versammelt als auch Demonstranten, die Schilder hoch hielten, auf denen stand: Justice for Jacob.
The President isn’t expected to meet with the family of Jacob Blake, the man was shot in the back seven times by a police officer. Trump claimed that he’s not meeting with Blake’s family during his Wisconsin visit because they wanted to involve lawyers.
According to Trump’s public schedule, the President is expected to begin his trip Tuesday afternoon with a visit to a „property affected by recent riots.“
Ein 17-Jähriger soll zwei Menschen bei den Protesten gegen Polizeigewalt in Kenosha erschossen haben. Die Staatsanwaltschaft klagt ihn wegen Mordes an. Sein Anwalt spricht von Notwehr.
Jacob Blake was shot 7 times in the back yesterday in front of his children by a police officer in Kenosha Wisconsin. Protests and riots then followed. Reports state he is still alive in critical condition.
Warning: this unedited eyewitness cell phone footage shows the police shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wisconsin on Aug. 23, 2020. This video contains graphic imagery and language that some may find difficult to watch.
The man who claimed to have made the video, 22-year-old Raysean White, said that he saw Blake scuffling with three officers and heard them yell, “Drop the knife! Drop the knife!” before the gunfire erupted. He said he didn’t see a knife in Blake’s hands.
The governor said that he has seen no information to suggest Blake had a knife or other weapon, but that the case is still being investigated by the state Justice Department.
In der vergangenen Woche hat der Oberste Gerichtshof von Wisconsin als erstes der höchsten einzelstaatlichen Gerichte in Amerika einen Großteil der Coronavirus-Bekämpfung einer Landesregierung für nichtig erklärt.
Es bleibt zu hoffen, dass in ganz Amerika gerichtliche und gesetzgeberische Maßnahmen ergriffen werden, um deutlich zu machen, dass Regierungen – ob auf bundesstaatlicher, lokaler oder nationaler Ebene – nicht erneut eine „Bedrohung der öffentlichen Gesundheit“ oder einen anderen „Notstand“ dazu benutzen können, um drakonische Maßnahmen durchzusetzen.
The Wisconsin Supreme Court has overturned the state’s stay-at-home order, ruling it „unlawful“ and „unenforceable“ in a high-profile win for the state’s Republican-led Legislature.
In a 4-3 decision Wednesday, the court ruled that Democratic Gov. Tony Evers‘ administration overstepped its authority when the state Department of Health Services extended the order to May 26.
Without legislative review, “an unelected official could create law applicable to all people during the course of COVID-19 and subject people to imprisonment when they disobeyed her order,” the majority wrote.
It was the latest protest organized by the Safe Skies Clean Water Coalition, a grassroots organization opposed to bedding down the next-generation fighters at Truax Field at the Dane County Regional Airport. But this was the first since the U.S. Air Force announced Wednesday it will send the jets to the Wisconsin Air National Guard’s 115th Fighter Wing in 2023, which proponents say will create new jobs and benefit the local economy.
Gov. Tony Evers (D) on Thursday extended his stay-at-home order until May 26
Wisconsin is the only state that was scheduled to hold a primary in April that has gone forward with in-person voting. The other states either delayed their contests until May or June or are holding them nearly entirely by mail.
The Wisconsin Supreme Court on Monday overturned Gov. Tony Evers’s (D) executive order to postpone Tuesday’s elections, sowing confusion and chaos around a critical election featuring a Democratic presidential primary and a pivotal state Supreme Court seat.
Gouverneur Tony Evers, ein Demokrat, hatte zwar eine Verschiebung angestrebt; er scheiterte aber an der Mehrheit der Republikaner im Regionalparlament.
The Wisconsin Republican Party has requested that the U.S. Supreme Court block extended absentee voting in the state’s presidential primary scheduled for Tuesday.
Many other states who were supposed to have primaries in April have rescheduled them for a later date due to the coronavirus pandemic, but Wisconsin is still slated to go through with its election as planned.
The Wisconsin Supreme Court ruled in favor of the Republican Party of Wisconsin on Tuesday in a case related to Wisconsin’s upcoming election.
The party brought the case against Dane County Clerk Scott McDonell last week.
McDonell issued guidance last week that any Dane County voter confined by the COVID-19 pandemic could mark themselves as „indefinitely confined“ on their absentee ballot application. Doing so would allow them to bypass the state’s voter ID requirement in their application.
