OAK CREEK- Governor Walker says he plans to move forward after the recall election.
With a historic election under his belt, the governor was given a more-than 3-minute standing ovation during a cabinet meeting Wednesday as he and Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch circled the table shaking hands and hugging each member.
At the meeting, the governor told his staff it's time to get back to work. Acknowledging the backlash from his reform decisions, Walker says he's hoping to mend fences and be more vocal in the future.
Governor Scott Walker spent little time discussing Tuesday's win. Speaking at an Oak Creek manufacturing plant, Walker told workers it's time to move on. "The election's done. The election's done. We don't have opponents anymore. That's passed. It's now time to come together, to work together to move this state forward," said Walker.
The governor maintains the focus now shifts from the campaign to job creation. Walker told reporters he's already working on recruiting outside businesses to Wisconsin.
Back at the capitol, the droves of protesters have thinned, the halls for the most part empty.
"it's been clear throughout the last year and a half that people, whether they voted for me or not, still would like us to have a more inclusive process, and we're going to do that," said Walker.
