Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker has survived a recall election and is now focusing his message on what lies ahead.
The rising Republican star says, "It's time to put our differences aside and find ways to work together."
But Walker faces a state that's still bitterly divided over his move to end collective bargaining rights for most public employees.
Yesterday, Walker defeated Democratic Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett to become the nation's first governor to survive a recall election.
The governor plans to meet with his cabinet today and then to invite all members of the Legislature to meet as soon as next week over burgers, brats and "maybe a little bit of good Wisconsin beer."
