MADISON, Wis. _ Democrat Tony Evers is set to take the oath of office and replace Gov. Scott Walker during a noon ceremony Monday at the state Capitol, ending eight years of Republican dominance in Wisconsin. While Republicans will maintain control of the Legislature, having Evers in place will give Democrats the power to block GOP bills and force either compromise or gridlock. It marks the first time since 2006, when Democrat Jim Doyle was governor, that the entire Legislature is controlled by the governor’s opposition. By Scott Bauer. SENT: 450 words, photos. Developing.
