LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- Donald Trump has added to his victory total in Wisconsin as the state's presidential recount continues.

Trump had picked up 146 votes on Hillary Clinton based on counties that reported by Tuesday that they had completed the recount. Trump beat Clinton by about 22,000 votes in the state.

Wisconsin's recount began Thursday. Since then, 23 out of 72 counties have reported that they are done recounting. In those counties, Trump has picked up 105 votes and Clinton has dropped 41 votes.

Green Party candidate Jill Stein requested the recount of the nearly 3 million ballots cast. Stein got less than 1 percent of the statewide vote and has said her goal is to rule out any concerns about the integrity of the vote being compromised.
