HARTLAND, Wis. (AP) -- Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker says he's not afraid to lose the recall election he faces in less than three weeks, but if he wins he intends to govern in a more inclusive, consensus-building way.
Walker's first 16 months in office have been marked by massive protests and a sharp partisan war over public employees' union rights.
Walker refused to say in a Thursday interview with The Associated Press whether he would veto a bill making Wisconsin a right to work state, which would allow workers to refuse to pay dues even if they are covered by a union contract. Walker says he would actively oppose such a proposal.
The Republican faces Democratic Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett in the June 5 recall.
