A federal judge has rejected a request for a recount of paper ballots in Pennsylvania, saying there is no credible evidence that any hacking occured or that the state’s voting system was in any way compromised.

Today’s ruling is the latest setback for the Green Party’s bid for statewide recounts in three states won by Donald Trump.

A federal judge halted Michigan’s recount last week. Wisconsin is expected to conclude its recount today.
