House Speaker Paul Ryan calls Donald Trump’s win an “incredible victory” but work now must turn to “bringing the country together.”

And Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker says his victory over Democrat Hillary Clinton is “a win for taxpayers and a win for America.” And he says “our leaders should look to Wisconsin and be willing to make the decisions needed to enact serious reforms.”

Both Ryan and Walker have a complicated relationship with Trump. Walker was critical of Trump before endorsing him. And Ryan pledged in October not to defend or campaign with him. But as the election neared, Ryan became more vocal for Trump.

Ryan says Trump’s win is a “repudiation of the status quo of failed liberal progressive policies.”

House Speaker Paul Ryan’s full statement: 

“I want to congratulate Donald Trump on his incredible victory. It marks a repudiation of the status quo of failed liberal progressive policies. We are eager to work hand-in-hand with the new administration to advance an agenda to improve the lives of the American people. This has been a great night for our party, and now we must turn our focus to bringing the country together.”

Governor Scott Walker’s full statement: 

“Tonight is a win for taxpayers and a win for America. As we start the work of putting our country back on track, our leaders should look to Wisconsin and be willing to make the decisions needed to enact serious reforms, just like we did in the Badger State.”
