MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Gov. Scott Walker is receiving a hero's welcome from his cabinet in his first meeting with them after winning a historic recall election.
His cabinet gave Walker a more-than 3-minute standing ovation Wednesday as he and Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch circled the table shaking hands and hugging each member.
Walker says he spoke with Democratic legislative leaders and "there's a sense people are ready to move on from this."
Walker says he is "focused like a laser beam" on creating jobs and he's not backing away from his 2010 campaign pledge to create 250,000 jobs by 2015.
He says he is thinking only about the next step and not "gloating in the victory" over Democratic Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett.
