MADISON - Gov. Tony Evers on Monday activated the Wisconsin National Guard to protect the state Capitol building and ordered the building's ground-floor windows boarded up after federal investigators revealed "armed protests" were being planned at statehouses across the country to oppose the inauguration of Joe Biden as president.    

The Evers administration authorized the National Guard to back up Wisconsin State Capitol police and took the "proactive cautionary" measure of boarding up the statehouse's windows after thousands of supporters of President Donald Trump converged on the U.S. Capitol last week to oppose the results of the Nov. 6 election, a breach that resulted in five deaths, injuries to police officers, and significant damage to the building. 

Guard members will serve in a support role to local authorities and conduct a site security mission, according to the Evers administration.
