Democrat says he’ll appeal to Walker to veto GOP power play

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin’s incoming Democratic governor says he’s willing to go to court if a Republican plan to restrict his powers is signed into law.

But Tony Evers says he’ll first make a personal appeal to Republican Gov. Scott Walker to veto the legislation.

Republicans on Wednesday passed far-reaching legislation that cuts into both Evers’ powers and those of the Democrat who will take over as attorney general next month.

It’s a move similar to that carried out by Republicans in North Carolina two years ago — and Republicans in Michigan are talking of similar action this week.

Evers says Republicans are ignoring the will of voters.
