Senators bet on Packers-Vikings game

WASHINGTON — The bets continue ahead of Saturday’s wild card matchup between the Green Bay Packers and Minnesota Vikings.

Wisconsin's U.S. Senators Ron Johnson and Tammy Baldwin are teaming up for a friendly wager against Minnesota's U.S. Senators Al Franken and Amy Klobuchar.

Baldwin and Johnson are betting a selection of Wisconsin beer (microbrews and traditional labels) against a case of Minnesota beer.

"This has been an exciting week," Baldwin said in a release. "But it's only going to get better when the Packers beat the Vikings and put an end to this trash talking from my Minnesota colleagues."

"It's not often we have the chance to beat Green Bay two weekends in a row," Klobuchar said in a release. "There will be no better way to wash down the sweet taste of victory than with an ice cold Wisconsin beer from my friends across the border."
