Wisconsin State Capitol Police requested that a 23-year-old Barron County man be questioned about a Facebook post he made related to Democratic candidate for governor Tony Evers.  Barron County Sheriff's Department reports show the request was made on Sunday. This week, Evers began to be guarded by the State Patrol's Dignitary Protection Unit, an unusual move for candidates.  Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald said he couldn't comment on the request to interview the Dallas, Wisconsin, man. State Patrol spokesman Christian Schneider declined to comment.
