Wisconsin recount going Trump's way with 88 percent tallied

Trump picked up a net 162 votes as a result of the recount that the Wisconsin Elections Commission certified Monday. The recount revealed Trump defeated Democrat Hillary Clinton by more than 22,000 votes.

The increase for these top four finishers in the state totaled 1,712 votes - a change that amounted to just 0.06% of the votes cast for them.

In response to Diamond's ruling, Stein said in a statement that Pennsylvanians' right to have their votes counted had been "stripped from right under them".

Earlier in the day, U.S. District Court Judge James Patterson rebuffed an effort by attorneys for Trump to end the recount. President-elect Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton by almost 23,000 votes in the state.

Meanwhile, Pennsylvania's recount efforts also came to a close on Monday, with a federal judge rejecting Stein's request to recount paper ballots and scan some counties' election systems for signs of hacking. The three states have traditionally been Democratic strongholds and made up an important part of the former secretary of state's so-called "firewall" to keep Trump from reaching a majority of Electoral College votes.

Her request to have every vote checked by hand in Wisconsin, which was backed by Ms Clinton, was also rejected.

Jill Stein has sought a recount there, as well as in MI and Wisconsin.

The Green Party has hit numerous barriers in county and state courts as it has sought to have votes recounted. In addition, Stein's campaign expects to receive some of the filing fee back from MI, where a recount was started but not completed. But if it is less, she would be refunded the difference. "Most importantly", he said, "there is no credible evidence that any "hack" occurred, and compelling evidence that Pennsylvania's voting system was not in any way compromised".

Stein says the recounts were stopped despite "overwhelming support". The campaign said it spent $7.4 million in the three states, but may have some money returned by MI and Wisconsin. If the final cost is higher, Stein's campaign would have to pay for it.

Cuba will change, but remain free after Castro's death
The Soviet Union bankrolled Castro's regime until 1989, when the Eastern Bloc's collapse sent Cuba's economy into free-fall. The Cuban government has declared a nine-day period of mourning and suspended alcohol sales and even baseball games.

"In the event of a recount surplus, the campaign will ask the more than 161,000 small donors how they want to spend the remaining funds, and have pledged to allocate the money to a set of nonpartisan election reforms and voting rights organizations based on the results of an online, ranked-choice vote", the campaign said in an email. She raised more than twice as much money for the recounts than she did for the entire presidential cycle ($3,509,477), and did it in less than three weeks.
