Walker: Victory Was A "Powerful Message In The Fall Election"

"They said loudly, not just in Wisconsin but across the country, if you do the right thing, if you make the tough choices, voters will stand with you," Gov. Scott Walker (R-Wis.) said about his victory last night on the Wednesday morning broadcast of FOX News' "FOX & Friends."

Walker also said his victory sends a "powerful message in the fall election" and offers some advice to Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney.

"I do think it is a powerful message in the fall election and probably even of greater importance after the elections that people mean it ... they mean it in Washington. They mean it in Madison and every other state across America when they say, 'we want you to take on these tough challenges and not just play for what’s maybe temporarily popular in the poll but something long term that's going to benefit us all,'” Walker added.

"The best thing he can do between now and November, because this is a very competitive state and we hope to see him here throughout the next several months, but is to get out and make a very compelling case about how he’s willing to take on the tough challenge," Walker added.

"If Governor Romney wants to be competitive in Wisconsin, I think he can. He needs to tackle those same issues," Walker said about the focus on his state's economy.
