MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers plans to change the date of the special election for an open congressional seat because he was told by the U.S. Department of Justice that the dates he set last week violated federal law. Evers’ spokeswoman, Melissa Baldauff, said Tuesday that state and federal laws conflict on when the dates should be set. The election is to replace Republican Sean Duffy, whose district includes Iron and Ashland County, Duffy resigned last week. Evers had set the special election for Jan. 27, with the primary set for Dec. 30.
