Walker Says He Feels 'Super' Since Recall Ended

POSTED: Tuesday, July 31, 2012 --- 11:10 a.m.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Gov. Scott Walker says he feels "super" in the two months since his recall election victory.

Walker said Tuesday not having to worry any more about the recall has allowed him to focus on other issues, like spending a full day recently touring drought damage or touting a cellphone recycling program to benefit military serving overseas.

Walker also says he's been able to have low-pressure meetings with state lawmakers since the recall. He says those meetings are an extension of talks that came at the bipartisan "brat summit" he held at the governor's mansion week after the recall.

Walker defeated Democratic Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett by 7 points in the June 5 recall.
