EXPLAINER: Why AP Hasn't Called Wisconsin
WHY AP HASNT CALLED WISCONSIN:
The Associated Press has not declared a winner in Wisconsins presidential contest because the race between President Donald Trump and Democrat Joe Biden is too early to call.
Trump, who is locked in a tight battle with Biden to secure the 270 electoral votes needed to win, prematurely claimed early Wednesday that he was winning the state.
Biden is ahead of Trump by fewer than 8,000 votes out of nearly 3.2 million cast. Trump led earlier in the night, fueled by in-person voting results, but the 169,000 outstanding ballots from Milwaukee and ballots from other cities broke heavily for Biden. There were still a few thousand other votes waiting to be counted, primarily from the city of Green Bay.
Trump also said he planned to contest the election before the Supreme Court. It was unclear exactly what legal action he might pursue.
