MILWAUKEE — Gov. Scott Walker may have scored a major win in an ongoing court battle over his 2012 recall campaign but he says he doesn't view the victory as vindication.

Walker said Wednesday he'll leave it to others to parse the significance of Tuesday's ruling. He says he's just looking forward to getting back to governing.

A so-called John Doe investigation was looking into whether Walker's campaign illegally coordinated with conservative groups. A federal judge halted the investigation Tuesday.

Walker says he can't comment much because he hasn't read the ruling. He says he expects the case will continue, but he's glad it seems to be approaching an end.

He also says he's accustomed to dealing with court challenges so he doesn't get too worked up about individual rulings.
