Walker says response to Sandy went above politics

Governor Scott Walker says the need to come together to help victims of Hurricane Sandy trumped the usual partisan politics on the campaign trail this past week. He says putting the focus on the effort to overcome the crisis was the right thing to do.

Walker says it was heartening to see utility companies from Wisconsin send more than 750 technicians and support staff to the East Coast to restore power and communications. He says those companies really stepped up.

Despite the air of cooperation for the national disaster, Walker admits it will be back to politics as usual for the last few days before the election. He says most people were expecting that, as the focus returns to the campaign trail for many Americans.
