Roque De La Fuente (Reform Party) has requested a recount in 5 Nevada Counties.


De La Fuente finished last in the state but this week requested a recount in Nevada, a state Democrat Hillary Clinton won. De La Fuente says he wants to counterbalance a recount Green Party candidate Jill Stein requested in Wisconsin, which President-elect Donald Trump won.


As previously reported, the Green Party has been very critical of Jill Stein's recount requests. The states she is targeting are only those that Trump won. Her actions have been viewed by many, including within the Green Party, as giving an appearance of support for Hillary Clinton.

The Latest: 5 Nevada counties to recount presidential race

At least De La Fuente is trying to balance that a bit.
It's not much, but at least he picked a good state.


Nevada Deputy Secretary of State for Elections Wayne Thorley said Wednesday that state law requires the five counties — Carson City, Douglas, Mineral, Nye and Clark — to begin the recount within five days and to complete it within five additional days.

Thorley says if recount results show a discrepancy of at least 1 percent for De La Fuente or Clinton, a full state recount will be launched.


Nevada Results


CLINTON, HILLARY 47.92% 539,260 VOTES
TRUMP, DONALD J. 45.50% 512,058 VOTES


Clinton won Nevada by 27,202 votes.

De La Fuente withdrew his petition for the recount in Wisconsin.


One of the two candidates who filed for a recount in Wisconsin's presidential election said he is withdrawing his petition because it is "cost prohibitive."


“I do not want to favor one candidate over another," De La Fuente said in a statement. "My only interest is to create a nationwide awareness of the vulnerability of our election system and to do everything possible to assure that your vote counts for the candidate for whom it is cast."

The candidate would have had to split the estimated $3.5 million cost of a recount in Wisconsin with Dr. Jill Stein, the nominee for the Green Party. Stein will now have to cover the entire cost of the recount, which she has called "exorbitant."

Nothing wrong with letting them run a re-count.

As long as the losers pay and pay and pay and pay and pay and pay and pay and pay and pay and pay and pay and pay and pay and pay and pay and pay and pay and pay and pay and pay and pay and pay and pay and pay and pay and pay and pay ...

I voted for Stein because she wasn't Hillary and holds a few of my ideals on her platform. I view her recount and where she's focusing them a betrayal, the whole reason many of us voted for her is the was the most liberal person not Hillary. She'll never get my vote again for this fiasco, she has exposed herself as a sell out.

Glad you came to that conclusion. Turns out both Sanders and Stein were Hillary's puppets

A few more details regarding the recount:


The recount will be held in Carson City, Douglas, Mineral, Nye, and Clark counties, with Fuente putting up the estimated cost of $14,000. The state of Nevada allows any candidate to file for a recount, as long as they cover the estimated cost of the proposed recount.

The cost is smaller in the State of Nevada compared to other states, because state workers will only count votes counted for Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and Fuente. If the 5-county recount a difference from the original count of greater than 1 percent, then all votes across the state will be recounted by hand.

At first I wondered why De La Fuente asked for recounts in 4 counties that Trump won and only one that Clinton won.

Then I looked at the results by county.
silverstateelection.com...
www.politico.com...

Clinton only won 2 out of 17 counties in Nevada.
They were the 2 with the highest populations, which seems to fit the pattern in most states where she won.

Trump won overwhelmingly in 15 counties.
Clinton won by 1.3% in Washoe, and by 10.6% in Clark.

Amazing how little they would have to control to rig an entire election.

We all know the recount is a scam. First of all they are trying to delay the Dec. 19th deadline so Trump loses out on the electors. Plus, why would you do a recount. You need to do an audit. A recount would just count the same way as the initially did it so you won't find much discrepancy. Third Jill got most of the money over night, which means some big players are in on it. She couldn't even fundraise that much money for a entire year in the presidential election. 4th why are the recounts in all of Trump wins? When the highest fraud cases would be CA and Nevada.

I agree about Stein. The thing is - this Nevada recount was not started by Stein.
It was started by Roque De La Fuente (Reform Party).
Clinton won in Nevada, so it makes this recount a bit different.

I have not quite figured out if De La Fuente's intentions are good or not.
He claims to be doing this to counter Stein's recount choices.

What's the status on the presidential recount in Nevada?


Three of the five counties involved in Nevada's presidential recount are expected to finish by Monday, Deputy Secretary of State for Elections Wayne Thorley said.

Nye County finished last week and Carson City and Douglas should wrap up Monday, Thorley said. Clark County, because of its sheer size, could take the entire week.

Thorley didn't know the status of Mineral County's recount effort.


Thorley said Sunday was the last day for counties to begin their recounts, and counties must finish recounting ballots by Friday. He said the Nevada Secretary of State's office would release all of the updated numbers at the same time, likely early the following week.
