In a stunning defeat for a president and party that rode repeal of the Affordable Care Act to improbable wins in the November 2016 election, Speaker Paul Ryan of Janesville and President Donald Trump this afternoon pulled a replacement bill that had no chance of passing.

The move on March 24, 2017, was a significant failure for House Republicans, who had voted by some counts 54 times during President Barack Obama's two terms to repeal the Affordable Care Act.

As the only statewide race on the ballot April 4, 2017 the contest for Wisconsin superintendent of public instruction has received more attention than usual.

Current Superintendent Tony Evers is running for his third term as head of the state Department of Public Instruction and is facing Dr. Lowell Holtz, former district superintendent for the School District of Beloit and the Whitnall School District southwest of Milwaukee.

Voters head to the polls April 4, 2017, for the spring election, which features local races for city, village and town boards as well as local school boards.
