Candidates Reflect on Recall Race

MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Governor Scott Walker says voting day in the recall election almost comes as a relief. 

After Walker cast his ballot this morning in the Milwaukee suburb of Wauwatosa, the Republican governor said he thinks most people are happy to have the election over and "want to have their TVs back" following weeks of political ads.

His challenger -- Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett -- voted at the city's French Immersion school. He's applauding voters for turning out in force and for being prepared to wait a while to cast their ballots. The Democrat says voters are engaged and he considers the long lines "a very encouraging sign." Turnout is key. Polls indicate there are few undecided voters.
