Gov. Walker makes Rose Bowl wager with Oregon counterpart


MADISON (WKOW) -- Governor Scott Walker (R-Wisconsin) has made a friendly wager with the Governor John Kitzhaber (D-Oregon) over the Rose Bowl between the Wisconsin Badgers and the Oregon Ducks.

Supporting his home state, Gov. Walker is predicting a Wisconsin victory.

Walker says, "Two years in a row Wisconsin has made a Rose Bowl appearance—it's a fantastic time to be a Badger fan.  While the Ducks will certainly be a formidable opponent, I am looking forward to collecting the items offered up so generously by Governor Kitzhaber."

With a Wisconsin victory, Gov. Kitzhaber will send a care package with a selection of Oregon's best craft beers, Kettle Chips produced in Salem, Oregon Hazelnuts and Smoked King Salmon.

If the Badgers fall to the Ducks, Walker will send a selection of Leinenkugel's beer produced in the Chippewa Valley, authentic Wisconsin cheese, a package of Andes mints made in Walker's hometown of Delevan, and a bottle of Blushing Rose Wine from Wollersheim Winery in Prairie du Sac.
