Evers waiting for recommendation on when to call election

BEAVER DAM, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers says he is waiting for a recommendation from his legal team about when to call a special election for the congressional district being vacated by retiring Republican Rep. Sean Duffy.

Evers told reporters Thursday that he doesn’t know yet if he will have the special election correspond with the state’s presidential primary in April. There is also state Supreme Court election that day.

Duffy announced on Monday that he plans to resign on Sept. 23 due to heart defects the baby his wife is due to deliver in October.

Evers says it is “relatively early in the process” but he hopes to make a decision soon.

The Democratic Evers says he is more concerned with finding a date that works well for that northwestern Wisconsin congressional district than one that may benefit Democrats.
