Gov. Walker Schedules Brat Summit for Tuesday

POSTED: June 8, 2012 --- 9:00 a.m.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Gov. Scott Walker has scheduled his brat summit with state lawmakers on Tuesday, a week after he won a recall election.

Walker promised the night of the election that he would start mending political wounds by inviting both Democrats and Republicans to the governor's residence for a casual get together over brats and beers.

Walker has set the cookout for Tuesday.

Walker's first year and a half in office has been marked by deep partisan division, which helped spark the recall drive. After his 7-point win, both Walker and Democrats talked about the need to move forward in a more bipartisan way.
