Walker tweets Bible verse following defeat
MADISON, Wis. — Gov. Scott Walker’s first comments since his election defeat are coming via Twitter, with the posting of a Bible verse.
Walker narrowly lost to Democrat Tony Evers in Tuesday’s election. While Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch vowed there would be a recount, and his campaign spokesman raised concerns about damaged ballots, Walker has not been heard from.

But shortly before 9 a.m. Wednesday, Walker tweeted the Psalm “This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.”
Walker’s father, Llew Walker, was a Baptist preacher who died in October.
Unofficial results show that Evers defeated Walker by just over 1 percentage point. Only candidates who lose by less than a point can request a recount.
Evers declared victory early Wednesday morning.
