Walker signs bill tightening election recount requirements
MADISON (AP) -- Gov. Scott Walker has just made it harder to ask for an election recount in Wisconsin.
Under the new law, only candidates who trail the winner by 1 percentage point or less in statewide elections could seek a recount. If that had been in effect last year, Democrat Hillary Clinton could have requested a recount since she finished within that margin. But Stein would have been barred.
Democrats argued against the change, saying if candidates want to pay for a recount they should be allowed to pursue it. Stein paid for the Wisconsin recount.
