Stein Final Recount Costs Below Estimates; Will Receive $2 Million Refund: Green Party nominee Jill Stein will receive $2 million in refunds after initial estimates were well above the final costs of the failed presidential recount attempts in three battleground states, according to officials.
Stein will use the leftover funds to launch a new voter integrity group.
Stein, who pushed for recounts in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and Michigan, was only successful in initiating a recount in Wisconsin, an effort that ultimately netted 131 more votes for President-elect Donald Trump. Federal courts in Pennsylvania and Michigan halted Stein’s attempted recounts in the states.
