Following his win in Tuesday’s Wisconsin recall election, Governor Scott Walker spoke out about his victory on Fox and Friends, saying that voters rewarded him for taking on tough challenges. He said, “They [the voters] said loudly, not just in Wisconsin, but across the country, ‘If you do the right thing, if you make the tough choices, voters will stand with you.’”

He addressed the impact of his win on November’s presidential election, reiterating that voters have sent a distinct message that they mean it “when they say, ‘We want you to take on these tough challenges and not just play for what’s maybe temporarily popular in the polls.’”
