WASHINGTON (AP) — Wisconsin's presidential primary election will proceed Tuesday under an order from the state Supreme Court that came just hours after Democratic Gov. Tony Evers tried to postpone voting as part of a last-ditch effort amid growing fears over the coronavirus.
The state court ruled 4-2 on Monday that Evers lacked the authority to move the election on his own.
