Walker says Supreme Court wasn't referendum on him


MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker says the state Supreme Court race was not a referendum on him.

Walker said Wednesday the election that was too close to call was a choice about two different candidates with different backgrounds.

Based on unofficial results previously unknown JoAnne Kloppenburg led incumbent David Prosser by a razor thin 204 votes.  Kloppenburg supporters tried to tie Prosser to Walker throughout the campaign against Prosser, who is a former Republican speaker of the Assembly.

Walker says for those who believe the election was a referendum -- the votes against Prosser were largely focused in the Madison and Milwaukee areas, which already lean Democratic.  He says he's not worried that the election results are a bad sign for Republican state senators up for recalls.
