MADISON- Lieutenant Governor Rebecca Kleefisch also had a resounding victory Tuesday night and is also looking to continue the "forward" theme.
She talked exclusively with TODAY'S TMJ4's Charles Benson about what's next.
"This is what democracy looks like," shouted Kleefisch at Tuesday night's victory celebration at the Waukesha County Expo.
It was an interesting play on words for the state's feisty female second-in-command. Rebecca Kleefisch also made history Tuesday night by being the only lieutenant governor to face a recall and win.
"Today is the day we move forward, together," said Kleefisch.
She was with Governor Scott Walker for a high profile cabinet meeting inside the State Capitol to talk about jobs. They're promising to create 250,000 jobs by 2015.
"The cabinet is excited about working together among the different agencies on creating jobs together because that is a bipartisan issue," said Kleefisch. "That's not a Republican issue. That's not a Democrat issue."
But the rhetoric remains red hot with death threats and anger from opponents and no signs of ending.
TODAY'S TMJ4's Charles Benson: "Did that come up in your conversations with the governor? How do you go forward knowing that still exists?"
Rebecca Kleefisch: "No, the governor and I didn't talk about of the threats."
But they did talk about the "Beer and Brat Summit" the governor wants to have with all lawmakers next week.
"I think one of the big issue that will bring us together is creating jobs together. I think that is going to be a main topic of conversation over brats and beer," said Kleefisch
On Friday, the lieutenant governor holds a small business roundtable in Milwaukee to talk about job opportunities for minorities.
