Ryan won't be joining Pence at Wisconsin rallySubmitted: 07/27/2016
MADISON - House Speaker Paul Ryan won't be joining Republican vice presidential nominee Mike Pence at a Wisconsin rally.

Pence is slated to campaign Wednesday night in Ryan's home state. The rally in Waukesha is about 60 miles from Ryan's home in Janesville.

Ryan introduced Pence at the Republican National Convention last week and has praised his addition to the ticket. Ryan has also been lukewarm on Trump, even though he plans to vote for him.

An aide to Ryan says he will be out of state Wednesday raising money for House Republicans.

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker does plan to join Pence for the rally, the Indiana governor's first solo campaign stop since being selected as Donald Trump's running mate nearly two weeks ago.

MILWAUKEE - A judge upholds the firing of the Milwaukee police officer who killed Dontre Hamilton.

Former officer Christopher Manney was fired for his actions leading up to Hamilton's 2014 shooting, but not for the shooting itself.

Manney appealed his firing in court after losing his first appeal before the Milwaukee Fire and Police Commission.

A judge found Manney was fired for violating department rules...and that his decision to frisk Hamilton escalated a routine police encounter into a catastrophe.

Hamilton was shot 14 times after Manney responded to a complaint of a man sleeping in a park.

Manney said he was attacked and he opened fire in self-defense.

The former officer was never charged in the shooting.
