thanks, casey. the recount ?hasn't started? in waukesha county. ben jordan is live with that part of our coverage. the clerk says there were several formalities to get through this morning and the afternoon - that have set them a bit hind schedule. in a room packed full of clerks - tabulators - observers and public - the presidential recount in waukesha county - has yet to involve firing up the optical scanners to count a ri a long time." tabulator fran korthof knew the process would involve some training - however she thought ballots would be in constant motion by now. "like the political process everything moves slow." the morning started with a motion to recount all of the ballots by hand despite the dane county judges ruling against requiring the method. "i think it's a more accurate way to determine the results." steve heric's motion - denied 2-1 with help from clerk kathleen novack "i think it's just critical we go ahead
5:01 pm
motions - came poll books - matching numbers from the general election to their ballot count of around 240,000. time ticked away until mid afternoon until that was complete - putting tabulators behind the daily goal. "i would suspect that we're not for today however i built out a timeline that gives us a potential full last day of no one scheduled."late afternoon was dedicated to more of the same with absentee ballots. "after we'll be opening ballot bags and starting the process there." a lengthy process - but a necessary one - to ensure every ballot will make it through this room with an recount. "they'll get it done, it done, they shifts if the official recount here in waukesha county is now expected to start this evening with absentee ballots. they plan to call it quits for the day at midnight. live in waukesha, ben today's tmj4. wisconsin votes have to be certified by december 13th. the electoral college meets and sends the votes to

january 6th. michigan was supposed to start ?its? recount tomorrow. but the trump campaign filed an objection. that will delay the start of michigan's recount until next week. ?pennsylvania? has a hearing on monday on steins request for a recount president elect-donald trump visited a "carrier" plant in indianapolis this afternoon. the president- elect announced a deal to keep hundreds of union jobs from going to mexico. he said there will be ?consequences? for companies who "they'll be taxed very heavily at the border if they want to leave, fire all their people, leave, make product in different companies in different countries and then think they're going to sell the product over the border." the president-elect has a speech scheduled tonight in cincinatti, ohio. wisconsin republicans are praising the carrier deal in indiana as a win for all american workers charles benson has their response. we are starting to get details of the carrier e deal and congressman sean duffy likes
5:03 pm
says it's a good sign for rust belt states like wisconsin that backed donald trump. the deal suggests carrier will get seven millionof dollars in tax incentives from indiana. others believe carrier's parent company will also benefit from the deal by preserving its lucrative federal government contracts. but to leverage what ever assets we have - i think is fair to make sure we keep jobs in america and so if mr trump talked abiltiy to contract as much with the united states government if they are sending carrier jobs to mexico, i think that's fair game. house speaker paul ryan also praised the carrier deal, even though he doesn't know the details of the agreement. "i'm pretty happy that we're keeping jobs in america. aren't you? i don't know the details of the carrier arrangement, but i do know ? that mike pence is still the sitting governor of indiana.

"there are in particular narrow streets that are difficult to plow. and in order to keep the streets safe, our main priority is public safety and parking places are part of that ofcourse, but we need to keep these streets safe during the winter months. it's also a good idea to go to the city's website to check streets where you want to park. and you can
