In his first interview since beating back a recall challenge, Gov. Scott Walker tells The Associated Press that the victory "feels good."

Walker said Tuesday that, "it's time to put our differences aside and find ways to work together to move Wisconsin forward."

Walker defeated Democratic Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett in the recall, becoming the first governor in U.S. history to survive a recall election.

Walker says he plans to meet with his cabinet Wednesday. He also wants to invite members of the Legislature to gather over burgers and brats as soon as next week to talk about ways to bridge the political divide that has gripped the state for more than a year.
