MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Gov. Scott Walker tells The Associated Press that he is "100 percent behind Tommy Thompson," but he won't say whether he voted for him in the Republican U.S. Senate primary on Tuesday.

Walker had refused to say leading up to the election who he intended to vote for in the four-person race. In an interview Wednesday, Walker said he didn't want to rehash the campaign and instead was looking ahead to helping Thompson beat Democrat Tammy Baldwin.

Walker on Wednesday also continued to refuse to say who he voted for in the Republican presidential primary in February. But Walker said Wednesday he fully supports Mitt Romney.

Thompson defeated businessman Eric Hovde, former U.S. Rep. Mark Neumann and state Assembly Speaker Jeff Fitzgerald on Tuesday.
