Here is the latest Wisconsin news from The Associated Press at 9:40 p.m. CDT

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Embattled Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and his allies are trying to change the conversation of his re-election campaign, as bad news continues to pile up for the two-term Republican incumbent. A third former Walker Cabinet secretary over the weekend spoke out against the governor, saying his recent comments about transportation are “not factually based.” The hit from former Transportation Secretary Mark Gottlieb comes as recent polls have shown Walker in a dead heat with Tony Evers.

MILWAUKEE (AP) — Attorney General Brad Schimel says more than 4,100 untested sexual assault evidence kits dating back to the 1980s in Wisconsin have finally been tested. Schimel has been criticized for taking too long to finish testing, but Monday’s announcement provides the Republican attorney general with a notable accomplishment to tout as he seeks another term in office this November. Schimel launched an initiative in 2016 to test kits that had been sitting on hospital and police department shelves.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Democratic U.S. Rep. Mark Pocan was one of the first members of Congress to mention the possibility of impeaching President Donald Trump more than a year ago. But on Monday Pocan downplayed impeachment talk when asked about it at a news conference, saying “it’s kind of a moot conversation in many ways” because “right now impeachment’s impossible.” That’s because Republicans control both the U.S. House and Senate where any articles of impeachment would have to be voted upon.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — U.S. Rep. Mark Pocan says it’s difficult to know how much federal money may be available to assist victims of flooding in his south-central Wisconsin congressional district, which includes the city of Madison. The process for determining what is eligible for federal money is complicated. Pocan stressed Monday that more details about what may be available from the Federal Emergency Management Agency will come after Gov. Scott Walker requests a federal disaster declaration.
