MADISON (WKOW) – Following Scott Walker's victory Tuesday night, speculation on social media immediately shifted to his 2016 presidential prospects.

Yahoo News senior political correspondent Jon Ward tweeted:

“Grover Norquist was standing next to me at the Yahoo Party, saw the Scott Walker win on TV, and said, 'we just won 2016.'”

Collin Roth, the Managing Editor of Right Wisconsin, tweeted:

“GOP Govs win in Maryland, Maine, Massachusetts. Add that to Walker, Snyder, Rick Scott, and even Brownback. Big night...”

Joe Fadness, the Executive Director of the Wisconsin GOP, tweeted: “VICTORY! Thank you, Wisconsin! Time to continue the Wisconsin Comeback!”

Meanwhile, Mary Burke supporters searched for silver lining.

Amy Williams tweeted “Yes, I am upset that @Burke4WI lost the WI election. But, at least I can say I voted. #Election2014.”
