OAK CREEK, Wis. (AP) -- In the wake of his historic recall win, Gov. Scott Walker says the best way to mend fences with Democrats is for lawmakers to collaborate on something everyone agrees on -- creating jobs.

Walker toured a manufacturing plant in Oak Creek Wednesday morning. He told reporters that his priorities going forward will be to help small businesses thrive and to put people back to work.

Walker says the lesson he learned from the recall experience is that voters want more time to evaluate proposed changes and to have their voices heard. He discounted talk of becoming a vice-presidential candidate. He says his friend, Congressman Paul Ryan, would be a better choice.
