Gov. Scott Walker wins another term as Governor

Posted: Updated:
 

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Gov. Scott Walker tells The Associated Press that any decision about whether he will run for president "will have to wait," as he intends to focus on working with the Legislature on quickly passing his agenda for the state.

Walker says his win Tuesday is "great for us" and he will be meeting with his cabinet on Wednesday in the Capitol before traveling around the state on Thursday to visit technical colleges.

He says, "The bottom line is people elected me to get the job done in Wisconsin. We're going to spend the next couple months putting together our legislative agenda."

Walker says he wants to pass a budget quickly to show the country that things work more smoothly in Wisconsin than Washington.

In her concession speech, democratic challenger Mary Burke told her supporters they still need to fight for the planks of her campaign, such as improving education, prioritizing women's issues and bolstering the state's economy.  Burke congratulated Governor Walker over his victory, but conceded there's not much common ground between the two.
