The recount in Wisconsin wrapped up Sunday with presumptive President-elect Joseph R. Biden keeping the state’s 10 electoral votes in his column.

President Trump’s campaign paid for the recount in two of the battleground state’s largest counties but it only netted about 87 votes — for his opponent, according to The Associated Press.

The two counties reviewed were Dane and Milwaukee.

Mr. Biden won by about 20,600 votes in the state.

There are at least two GOP-led lawsuits in Wisconsin still pending. They challenge the legality of absentee ballots from the November election.

The state is expected to certify its results by Tuesday.

Jenna Ellis, a lawyer for Mr. Trump, said the recount displayed several issues with absentee ballots.

“The recounts in Dane and Milwaukee Counties have revealed serious issues regarding the legality of ballots cast. As we have said from the very beginning, we want every legal vote, and only legal votes to be counted, and we will continue to uphold our promise to the American people to fight for a free and fair election,” she said.
