Here is the latest Wisconsin news from The Associated Press:

FRIENDSHIP, Wis. (AP) -- Some Democrats are concerned that Wisconsin Congresswoman Tammy Baldwin could be too liberal to win the more conservative parts of the state in November as she tries to get elected to the U.S. Senate. The first openly gay candidate elected to Congress is popular in liberal Madison, but she's far less known in the rest of the state.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Police in Madison say a 13-year-old boy was arrested on an attempted homicide charge for allegedly stabbing his 21-year-old brother in the chest. Investigators say the two were arguing Saturday night and the altercation became physical and the teenager grabbed a knife and began stabbing his brother.

HOWARD, Wis. (AP) -- A Milwaukee woman is in critical condition after her car was hit head-on by a Brown County Sheriff deputy. Investigators say Deputy Rueben Meisner lost control of his squad car on Saturday near Green Bay, as he and other officers were pursuing a stolen car. He crossed the centerline and struck the 27-year-old's car.

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Oscar-winning actor Ernest Borgnine had plenty of fans in Wisconsin where he brought star status to the Great Circus Parade in Milwaukee before his death yesterday at age 95. In his autobiography, Borgnine devoted a chapter to "clowning around" in Milwaukee and wrote how he treasured the experience.
