Clinton campaign speaks out
"Because we had not uncovered any actionable evidence of hacking or outside attempts to alter the voting technology, we had not planned to exercise this option ourselves," Elias wrote in a Medium post explaining the decision, "but now that a recount has been initiated in Wisconsin, we intend to participate in order to ensure the process proceeds in a manner that is fair to all sides."
Hillary Clinton's campaign Saturday said it intends to back
Jill Stein's recount efforts.
The Wisconsin recount was
initiated by Green Party candidate Jill Stein, who has raised millions of dollars to have votes counted again in Wisconsin.
Green Party officials filed Friday for a recount in Wisconsin after reports of voting discrepancies.
"This is a process, a first step to examine whether our electoral democracy is working," Wisconsin Green Party co-chairman George Martin said.
Clinton campaign had not planned to ask for recounts of WI, MI, PA.
“Now that a recount has been initiated in Wisconsin, we intend to participate in order
to ensure the process proceeds in a manner that is fair to all sides,” Elias wrote.
“If Jill Stein follows through as she has promised and pursues recounts in Pennsylvania and Michigan, we will take the same approach in those states as well.”
