Clinton Camp: We’re In

As growing concerns of Russian hacking and tampering build a groundswell of support for Green Party candidate Jill Stein’s campaign for recounts in Wisconsin, Michigan, and Florida, the Clinton campaign announced on Saturday that although it had not uncovered any evidence of hacking of voting systems, that it would take part in the effort to “ensure that it is fair to all sides.”

The announcement came from Marc Elias, Clinton’s general counsel, in a post to Medium. Elias states that the numbers in these states well exceed any that have ever been overcome by a recount, but that now that Stein is moving forward with recounts in those states, that the Clinton camp will serve as a presence to make sure Clinton’s interests are met.

The campaign’s announcement came amidst Stein’s fundraising effort for recounts in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and Michigan approached $6 million, nearly reaching it’s $7 million goal. Stein says it needs to collect the funds by Wednesday, which will be the deadline to file for a recount in Michigan.

A petition online is building growing support for Stein to also challenge the results of North Carolina, Arizona, and Florida. It has 8600 supporters as of Saturday morning.
