MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers plans to change the date of the special election for an open congressional seat because he was told by the U.S. Department of Justice that the dates he set last week violated federal law.

The election is to replace Republican Sean Duffy, who resigned on Sept. 23. That day, Evers set the special election for Jan. 27, with the primary scheduled for Dec. 30.
