- Governor Scott Walker puts off an announcement on whether he will approve a new casino in Kenosha.Walker spokesman Tom Evenson said the governor will not announce his decision Friday as originally planned.

Walker said he expected to make his decision by the end of the week.Evenson says Walker needs more time to review information submitted by the tribe.
