Obama downplays effect of Wisconsin election
Obama downplays effect of Wisconsin election, but says he would have loved different result
By The Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) ' President Barack Obama says he doesn't expect broad political repercussions from Republican Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker's success holding on to his office. He adds, however, that he would have "loved to see a different result."

Obama told television station WBAY in Green Bay, Wis., on Monday that Walker's recall election reflected specific circumstances in Wisconsin. He downplayed any effect on his political chances in the state, saying it was unusual for a governor to get that much attention in the middle of his term.

Obama has faced questions about why he didn't spend time campaigning in the state on behalf of Democratic challenger Tom Barrett. In response, Obama says: "I've got a lot of responsibilities."



Walker faced a recall after pushing through legislation eliminating most public workers' collective bargaining rights.
