Wisconsin Republicans, Democrats Join in Bipartisan Super Bowl Bet With PA Counterparts Cheese, Root Beer, Bratwurst on the Line For Packers
MADISON-Wisconsin's Democrats and Republicans are putting aside partisan differences to back the Pack and make a Super Bowl wager with their bipartisan Pennsylvania counterparts."Just as President Obama’s Bears learned, the Pittsburgh Steelers will soon find out what Wisconsinites are made of. Mike and I look forward to enjoying some of Pennsylvania’s finest suds and subs," said Reince Priebus, Chairman of the Republican National Committee.
"The only part of President Obama's agenda that I have disagreed with has had to do with his hometown Chicago Bears, but now that this is behind us, and in the spirit of his State of the Union address, I am pleased to reach across the aisle with my friend Reince and back the Pack against the Pittsburgh Steelers," Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Mike Tate said Monday..
Staked by the Wisconsin half of the bipartisan bet:
Two pounds of award-winning Carr Valley 10-year-aged cheddar, from La Valle, Wis.
Six lbs. of classic Usinger's bratwurst, from Milwaukee, Wis.
One case of Sprecher Root Beer, made with real Wisconsin honey, from Glendale, Wis.
Meanwhile, from Steeler Nation, Pennsylvania's Republicans and Democrats will wager from Pittsburgh:
Four orders of Pamela's Pancakes
Four Primanti Brothers Sandwiches
One Case of Iron City Beer
