(NBC News) Green Party nominee Jill Stein appeared to have met her initial fundraising goal early Thursday for recounts of the vote in three key swing states that went to Donald Trump — Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.
However, she quickly raised the sum being sought by another $2 million. “Raising money to pay for the first round so quickly is a miraculous feat and a tribute to the power of grassroots organizing,” a message on her website read.
The Green Party didn’t single out any specific evidence of fraud, nor does it need proof of irregularities to call for a recount. Stein’s party won only 1 percent of the vote.
