Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers on Monday named Democrat Joe Biden as the winner of the presidential election.
“Today I fulfilled my duty to certify the November 3 elections, and as required by state and federal law, I signed the Electoral List Approval Certificate for President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris,” Evers said in a statement.
The partial recount in Wisconsin cost Trump’s campaign $ 3 million. As a result of the recount, President-elect Joe Biden received several dozen additional votes.
President Trump plans to vow to go to court. The state Supreme Court is already considering whether to accept two lawsuits from Wisconsin voters, who seek to have the Republican-controlled state legislature, rather than voters, decide how to cast the Wisconsin electoral votes.
Earlier, the victory of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris was certified by Arizona.
Trump said last week that he would leave the White House at the end of his term if the Electoral College vote ends in Biden’s favor. It will take place on December 14th. At the moment, it is believed that Biden has 306 votes, while Trump has 232.
