(Newser) Scott Walker's success in Wisconsin isn't worrying the White House, press secretary Jay Carney says. "I certainly wouldn't read much into (the) result beyond who is occupying the governor's seat in Wisconsin," he told reporters, reports the Chicago Sun-Times. "What you had was an incumbent governor in a repeat election that he had won once, in which he outspent his challenger by a magnitude of seven or eight to one with an enormous amount of outside corporate money and huge donations." Others beg to differ.
