Gov. Scott Walker on order to arm on-duty National Guard members: 'Safety must be our top priority, especially in light of the horrific attack in Chattanooga.

Upcoming: So here's what's happening today... as the world waits for news from Vienna on the status of the talks focused on Iran's nuclear program, we are hearing that President Rouhani will address his nation tonight. No details have been given on the remarks he will make but we expect he will update people on the progress of the talks. We'll attempt to have live video, if not we'll bring you text updates. Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker joined the 2016 Republican presidential field with a tweet declaring his intention to run for the presidency. He'll speak at 6pm ET and we'll cover that live. This makes him candidate 15 in the Republican field, if you're keeping count. On top of this we'll be checking in on Greece and the hunt for Mexican drug lord 'El Chapo' - David

Wisconsin's geography is diverse, with the Northern Highland and Western Upland along with a part of the Central Plain occupying the western part of the state and lowlands stretching to the shore of Lake Michigan. Wisconsin is second to Michigan in the length of its Great Lakes coastline.
Wisconsin is known as "America's Dairyland" because it is one of the nation's leading dairy producers, particularly famous for cheese. Manufacturing, especially paper products, information technology (IT), and tourism are also major contributors to the state's economy.
