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

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin Attorney General Brad Schimel is touting his support from local law enforcement officials in his first television ad, including a sheriff who came under scrutiny for allegedly trying to have his son’s car accident record destroyed and for hacking a detective’s personal Dropbox account. Schimel’s campaign announced the ad buy Wednesday. It features Taylor County Sheriff Bruce Daniels, a Democrat who was accused of accessing a subordinate’s personal account without permission.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker says it would be easier to call the state Senate back to vote on an incentive package for Kimberly-Clark after the November election, but the company says it wants action by the end of the month. Walker told The Associated Press on Wednesday that he’s working “hard” on reaching a deal that can get the necessary votes to pass the Senate. But he says it’s going to need bipartisan support.

JOHNSONVILLE, Wis. (AP) — One of the last pieces attributed to the late Robert Indiana is in place outside Johnsonville sausage company’s headquarters in Wisconsin. The 20-foot-tall stacked red letters spell “BRAT,” short for “bratwurst.” They’re a take on Indiana’s enduring pop art “LOVE” series with its “LO” stacked on top of the “VE.” Indiana died earlier this year at age 89.

WAUPACA, Wis. (AP) — A Wisconsin man has been sentenced to six years in prison after being convicted of his 14th drunken driving offense. Sixty-five-year-old Daniel Nordell, of Waupaca, also was placed on extended supervision for five years Monday. In May, Nordell was arrested after authorities say he hit a mailbox, a speed limit sign and a utility pole in Farmington.
