While the mainstream media was jumping on coverage of Jill Stein’s “Recount 2016” efforts in the Trump-held states of Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin, another recount was silently completed with little fanfare in a Clinton-majority state. Third-party candidate Rocky De La Fuente initiated a recount in Nevada without the publicity of a massive fundraising effort in key blue counties of Nevada noting that the efforts were a bid to “counterbalance” the Stein funded efforts in the Rust Belt.

ABC News reports that Rocky De La Fuente paid roughly $14,000 to initiate a partial recount in the blue state of Nevada. Hillary Clinton won the state by just 27,202 votes, a margin similar to Jill Stein’s recount efforts in key Trump states. Stein demanded recounts in Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania. In Pennsylvania, Trump leads Clinton by 44,000 votes. Therefore, De La Fuente said he wanted to “counterbalance” those initiatives by initiating a recount in a blue state with similar voting results.
