MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Gov. Tony Evers has scheduled a special election this spring to fill outgoing Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald's seat.

Evers announced Tuesday that the special election will be held on April 6 in southeastern Wisconsin's 13th Senate District.

The election will coincide with the state's spring election.

A primary for Fitzgerald's seat will be held Feb. 6 if necessary. Candidates can start circulating nomination papers Tuesday and must file them by 5 p.m. on Jan. 8.

Fitzgerald won an open seat in Congress in November's elections.
