Packers Win and So Does Baldwin

Senator Cruz Makes Good on Packers vs. Cowboys Wager

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) made good on a friendly wager with U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) after the Green Bay Packers defeated the Dallas Cowboys 26-21 in the NFL Second Round Playoffs on Sunday, January 11, 2015. 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.”
