WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign will seek a partial recount of Wisconsin’s election results for the Nov. 3 presidential contest, the campaign said on Wednesday.

In a statement, the campaign said it transferred $3 million to Wisconsin to cover the costs of recounting votes in Milwaukee and Dane counties, two heavily Democratic areas.
