Republican Assembly Speaker Robin Vos says he is open to looking at ways to limit the power of incoming Democratic Gov-elect Tony Evers.

Vos told reporters Wednesday that he's open to seeing if there were ways to "rebalance" powers of the executive. But Vos says he hasn't talked with Republican Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald. He was to meet with Republican senators on Thursday and elect new leaders.

Vos made his comments the day after Evers narrowly defeated Gov. Scott Walker.

Evers spokeswoman Britt Cudaback says it's "unfortunate" that Vos is "doubling down on division just hours after Governor-elect Evers called on Speaker Vos and Majority Leader Fitzgerald to set aside differences and work together on the pressing issues facing our state."
