Walker says Supreme Court race not a referendum on his agenda

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. He says he’s not worried that the election results are a bad sign for Republican state senators up for recalls.
