Here is the latest Wisconsin news from The Associated Press:

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Wisconsin Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen says he will seek permission to enforce a state law that effectively ended collective bargaining for public employees while his office appeals a judge's ruling striking it down. Van Hollen's office said Saturday it will seek a stay of Dane County Circuit Judge Juan Colas's decision from Friday overturning most of the law championed by Republican Governor Scott Walker.

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- President Barack Obama is scheduled to be in Wisconsin next Saturday for a campaign event and fundraiser. Wisconsin has become a closely contested battleground state since the selection of Badger State native Paul Ryan as GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney's running mate. Obama won the state by a wide margin in 2008 and Republicans have not won a presidential election statewide since 1984.

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Republican vice presidential candidate and Wisconsin U.S. Representative Paul Ryan is briefly passing through the state for a campaign fundraiser this weekend, but plans no public appearances. Ryan attended a fundraiser yesterday in Middleton.

NEW YORK (AP) -- The final piece is in place for the presidential race on "Saturday Night Live." "SNL" cast member Taran Killam will be playing GOP vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan. The question of who had won this key role was answered last night when the NBC comedy show returned for its season premiere. Killam appeared in a sketch as the Wisconsin Congressman attempting to clarify his past athletic achievements.
