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

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The Democratic candidate for lieutenant governor says he is not interested in people who voted for Barack Obama and then switched to Donald Trump, if they still support the president. The comment from Mandela Barnes drew criticism from the Wisconsin Republican Party. GOP spokesman Alec Zimmerman on Thursday called the remarks “outrageous.” Barnes said in a statement that he could have been more clear in the point he was making at a Wednesday forum.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Candidates for governor and U.S. Senate in Wisconsin will both be debating, in separate cities, on the night of Oct. 19. The governor’s debate sponsored by the Wisconsin Broadcasters Association was originally announced for Oct. 5. But the WBA Foundation announced Thursday that the debate day had been changed to Oct. 19.

MILWAUKEE (AP) — A Milwaukee police officer involved in the stun gun arrest of Bucks’ player Sterling Brown has been fired because of social media posts mocking Brown. Police Chief Alfonso Morales disclosed the firing Thursday and identified the officer as Erik Andrade. Brown sued the police department in June and accused officers of using excessive force and targeting him because he’s black. Andrade mocked Brown on Facebook for his Jan. 26 arrest stemming from a parking violation.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Gov. Scott Walker is asking federal emergency management officials to survey Wisconsin flooding damage later this month. Walker’s office issued a news release Thursday saying the governor has asked the Federal Emergency Management Agency to conduct a preliminary assessment beginning Sept. 24.
