Baldwin Wins Packers Bet

U.S. Senator Ted Cruz of Texas made good Tuesday on a friendly wager with U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin of Wisconsin over the outcome of the playoff game between the Dallas Cowboys and Green Bay Packers.  Since the Packers defeated the Cowboys 26 to 21 at Lambeau Field Senator Cruz graciously treated Senator Baldwin to Blue Bell ice cream and Shiner Bock beer. “The Packers have left few to question who really holds the title of ‘America’s Team,’” said Senator Baldwin. “I appreciate Senator Cruz’s courage to bet against the Packers, and his generosity in defeat. If he’s looking for a hug I hear there’s a Cowboy fan in New Jersey who needs one too.” Photo courtesy Senator Baldwin’s Office.
