In a recount requested by the Trump campaign, Biden won Dane County by 181,340 votes and is poised to be certified the state’s winner

The recount in Dane County, which was requested by the Trump campaign, showed Biden won by 181,340 votes after the recount as the President-elect’s lead narrowed by 45 votes. The completed recount, along with Friday’s recount in Milwaukee County, leaves Biden poised to be the certified winner when the Wisconsin Elections Commission certifies the state’s election results on Tuesday.
Both candidates saw a decrease from their election night vote totals in Dane County, with Biden losing 91 votes, and Trump losing 46 votes in the recount, the Dane County Board of Canvassers announced Sunday. The drawdowns were mostly due to a lack of signatures on ballots, either from the voter or a witness.
On Friday, Biden saw a net gain of 132 votes as part of a recount in Milwaukee County, the only other Wisconsin county that was part of the recount requested by Trump’s campaign.
But even as the new vote totals affirm Biden’s win over Trump in the state, the President continued to peddle baseless claims of widespread voter fraud in the election during a Sunday interview on Fox News. He called Milwaukee, along with two other major cities, “among the most dishonest political places,” as he spouted off numerous conspiracy theories during the interview about a “well-coordinated attack” on his campaign.
Dane County saw no major issues during the recount, and there are no outstanding issues to address, according to County Clerk Scott McDonell, who is also a member of the Board of Canvassers.
While announcing the results on Sunday, McDonell said it was clear from the recount that there was no voter fraud, and questioned why the campaign only asked for a recount in two of Wisconsin’s counties if they believed the issue was widespread in the state.
He also tweeted a photo on Sunday of a summary of the recount with the caption “3-0 certification of Dane County recount.”
Trump tweeted Saturday afternoon that his campaign plans to challenge the results of the Wisconsin recount in court.
