Gov. Scott Walker's brat summit with lawmakers will be a private party.

Walker spokesman Cullen Werwie said Monday that Tuesday's event at the governor's residence will only be open to the lawmakers, spouses and staff invited with no media access.

Walker pledged to hold the event the evening he won a recall election as a way to bring Republicans and Democrats together. The cookout is scheduled to take place exactly one week after his victory.

Despite Walker's calls for bipartisanship, two prominent state lawmakers said Monday they will not attend.

Democrat Mark Pocan says he owes it to his constituents to find more meaningful results than sharing brats and beer. And Republican Steve Nass says he won't go because of comments made by Democrats over the weekend critical of Walker.
