Walker asks judge to extend deadline to call special election

MADISON, Wis. - Gov. Scott Walker asked a judge to extend the deadline by which he would have to call a special election in two Wisconsin legislative districts, according to court documents. 

Last week, a judge ordered Walker to call a special election in the 42nd Assembly District in Columbia and Dodge counties and in senat District 1 in the Fox Valley. 

The judge ordered that Walker do so by noon on Thursday. 

Republican leaders have said they intend to vote on April 4 on a new bill that would change the law about calling elections.

Walker asked the judge Monday night to extend his deadline to April 6.
