How Gov. Scott Walker’s recall victory in Wisconsin plays out on the national stage ahead of November’s presidential election is a question with many answers.

Walker, the only governor in U.S. history to survive a recall election, outpaced Democrat and Milwaukee mayor Tom Barrett Tuesday. On Wednesday, many Republicans and their supporters heralded Walker’s victory as “a warning for President Barack Obama about the potential hurdles he faces as he fights to hang onto a traditionally Democratic battleground he won comfortably in 2008,” the Huffington Post reported.

Wisconsin has solidly voted for the Democratic nominee since 1984; still, Republican Mitt Romney feels optimistic about his chances of winning there in November.

“Tonight’s results will echo beyond the borders of Wisconsin,” Romney tweeted Tuesday, the New York Daily News reported.
