MADISON, Wis. -

State Rep. Don Pridemore says he doesn't understand why fellow Republican Gov. Scott Walker didn't endorse him in his race for state superintendent.

Pridemore lost to incumbent Tony Evers in Tuesday's election.

Evers signed the petition to recall Walker, but the governor still refused to endorse anyone in the race.

Pridemore says after his loss that he is disappointed Walker didn't help him with his campaign. Pridemore says people should question why Walker "didn't support someone who would be a much friendlier person in this job."

Pridemore says he was also rebuffed when he tried to talk with Walker about education issues during the campaign. He says he hopes his relationship with Walker improves now that the campaign is over.
