Gov. Walker schedules brat summit for Tuesday
Gov. Scott Walker
MADISON (AP) — Gov. Scott Walker has scheduled his brat summit with state lawmakers for Tuesday, June 12th — one 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 seven-point win, both Walker and Democrats talked about the need to move forward in a more bipartisan way.
