Governor Walker Says He's Not Thinking About Recall Recount

Posted Monday, June 4, 2012 --- 9:50 a.m.

FITCHBURG, Wis. (AP) -- Republican Gov. Scott Walker says he's not worried about a recount as he makes his final campaign stops ahead of Tuesday's recall election.

Walker faces Democrat Tom Barrett in a contest spurred by Walker's contentious plan to strip most public workers of nearly all their union rights. Walker is only the third U.S. governor to face a recall.

Polls show a tight race. Walker told reporters during a tour of a plastics plant in Fitchburg Monday morning he expects things will be close but he's not thinking about a recount. He says he's focused on telling voters the union restrictions helped balance the state budget.

Walker planned a number of other campaign stops across the state Monday. Barrett planned to spend his day in western and northern Wisconsin.
