WASHINGTON - Republicans control Congress so President Donald Trump's pledge to boost the Pentagon budget by tens of billions of dollars should be a sure bet. It's not. Trump faces skeptical Democrats whose support he'll need and resistance from fiscal conservatives opposed to repealing a 2011 law that set firm limits on military and domestic spending.

State superintendent candidates 
call each other liars
Sun sets on Wisconsin duo's 
plan to end daylight saving time
MADISON - Wisconsin state superintendent candidates John Humphries and Lowell Holtz accused one another of being liars on Friday, while a Democratic lawmaker told Humphries at an unusual Capitol news conference that "we don't want you." Humphries called the news conference, just four days before the primary election, to "clear the air" and be "entirely transparent" about a job offer that Holtz allegedly presented at a December meeting.  MADISON - The sun has set on a bid to eliminate daylight saving time in Wisconsin. Rep. Michael Schraa, of Oshkosh, said Friday that he and Rep. Samantha Kerkman, of Salem, have decided to scrap the measure amid a social media backlash and will now actually push to make daylight saving time a permanent fixture in the state. "Relatives are calling me and texting me saying, 'What the heck are you doing? Don't take away my hour of sunlight,'" Schraa said.
DOJ: Travel ban didn't impact Wisconsin asylum seeker Corrections Department will 
resell $36,800 in furniture
MADISON - President Donald Trump's travel ban did not appear to affect a Syrian man's attempts to bring his wife and young daughter to Wisconsin, U.S. Justice Department attorneys told a federal judge Friday, noting that the family's asylum applications were still being processed. The department's court filing provides clarity on the administration's position following challenges to the executive order that Trump signed Jan. 27 but has since been put on hold.  MADISON - The Wisconsin Department of Corrections will try to resell $37,000 of new furniture ordered by the state Parole Commission just days before the agency was targeted for elimination. Corrections Department spokesman Tristan Cook first said Thursday that the furniture would be repurposed for use in the Corrections Department after the Parole Commission is eliminated. But he reversed himself 35 minutes after The Associated Press reported on the purchase, saying instead the order would be canceled or scaled back.
