>> Hillary Clinton's campaign moving off the side line Saturday to join a vote recount in Wisconsin. The Clinton camp deciding to participate in the statewide recount initiated by Green party presidential candidate Jill Stein, campaign loyal Mark Elias announcing in a blog post. The Clinton team says, it's been exploring claims of voter irregularities or hacking and hasn't uncovered anything.

But since Stein is calling for a recount, quote, we intend to participate in order to ensure the process proceeds in a manner that is fair to all sides. What that means, is not exactly clear. Ahead of the Wisconsin recount, Clinton lost to Trump by more than 22,000 votes.

The first Democrat to lose that state in more than 30 years and her campaign lawyer doesn't expect the recount to change that outcome. Green Party candidate Jill Stein has been pushing for a recount, citing concerns about voter machine hacking, quickly raising nearly $6 million for legal fees and costs.

So far there's been no evidence of tampering or other voting error. The Clinton campaign says if Stein requests a recount in Pennsylvania and Michigan, two states that Clinton lost, it'll jump on that too. Although Clinton is on track to win the national popular vote by more than 2 million, she lost the electoral college tally to Trump.
