MADISON — The Wisconsin Democratic Party filed a lawsuit Thursday alleging a lame-duck law Republicans passed to limit Gov. Tony Evers' powers is meant to retaliate against his supporters in violation of the U.S. Constitution. The party filed the lawsuit in federal court in Madison. The action is the fourth legal challenge to the lame-duck measure since former Republican Gov. Scott Walker signed it into law in December, including a union lawsuit that Evers joined.

Brewers' Braun aiming to build off strong finish last season
PHOENIX — Those days of playing every day, they're done for Ryan Braun. Most important for the longtime Milwaukee Brewers star these days is making the most of the time he's in the lineup. Now 35, Braun is inching closer to the downside of his career. And while he is still capable of being a game-changing presence, staying healthy and on the field on a regular basis is not nearly as easy as it was when he was 28 and just hitting his prime.
Gov. Evers pitches $28Mfor women's health care issues Hartford-based API Healthcare sold to Houston company
MADISON — Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers wants to restore funding for Planned Parenthood that his Republican predecessor cut as part of a nearly $28 million plan to expand access to women's health care.

Wisconsin Realtors revoke support for Hagedorn in court race Assembly speaker gives governor's marijuana plan low odds
MADISON — The Wisconsin Realtors Association has revoked its endorsement of Wisconsin Supreme Court candidate Brian Hagedorn and asked for its $18,000 donation to be returned following reports that he helped found a private elementary school that allows gay students to be expelled. The president and chief executive officer of the association, Michael Theo, issued a statement Monday saying that issues that served as the basis for its endorsement have been overshadowed by other "non-real estate related issues." MADISON — Wisconsin's Republican Assembly speaker doesn't believe Democratic Gov. Tony Evers' proposal to legalize medical marijuana and decriminalize small amounts for recreational use will be a success. Speaker Robin Vos put the chances of Evers' plan passing at 10 percent, telling an audience of Capitol insiders on Thursday that Evers missed an opportunity to score a victory. Evers, who is in his sixth week as governor, might have been able to win support for a narrower proposal limited only to medical marijuana, Vos said.
