WASHINGTON, D.C. - Wisconsin and Kentucky senators announced a friendly wager on the outcome of Saturday's NCAA basketball Final Four game, according to a release.
Wisconsin Sens. Ron Johnson and Tammy Baldwin bet against Kentucky Sens. Mitch McConnell and Rand Paul, according to the release. The stakes are Wisconsin brats and cheese against Kentucky Derby Pie from Kern's Kitchen in Louisville.
"Sen. Baldwin and I will enjoy eating some pie for dessert as we celebrate a Badger victory over the Kentucky Wildcats," Johnson said.
"I never imagined that Bucky Badger would bring together with Sens. Johnson Paul and McConnell," Baldwin said. "I look forward to enjoying some Kentucky Derby Pie when the Badgers win, but it's a shame that Mitch and Rand won't get a taste of our famous 'Made in Wisconsin' brats and cheese. Maybe if they do the Bucky Dance after our victory, we will reconsider."
"Sen. Paul and I look forward to tasting Wisconsin brats and cheese, courtesy of Sens. Johnson and Baldwin, as desserts following UK's victory over Wisconsin on Saturday," McConnell said. "There is no disputing that the Commonwealth of Kentucky is the college basketball capital of the world and Sen. Paul and I are proud to watch the Wildcats continue their NCAA tournament run."
"The Cats are on a roll and Big Blue Nation can't wait to celebrate another win this Saturday. I know I will enjoy Kentucky's victory even more by celebrating with Wisconsin brats and cheese. Fear the tweak, Ron and Tammy," Paul said.
