WAUKESHA, Wis. (AP) -- Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker says voters want leaders who "stand up and make tough decisions."
Walker spoke late Tuesday to a crowd of supporters at his campaign headquarters in Waukesha. During his remarks, the crowd erupted into chants of "Thank you, Scott!"
Walker defeated Democratic Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett to become the first governor in U.S. history to survive a recall election.
He says he wants to invite lawmakers to gather over burgers and brats as soon as next week to talk about ways to bridge the political divide that has gripped the state for more than a year.14647918
