Senator Johnson makes tasty Super Bowl wager


MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Two U.S. senators from Wisconsin and Pennsylvania have made a tasty bet on the Super Bowl.

Republican Sens. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin and Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania have wagered a sampling of their state's signature foods.

If the Green Bay Packers win, Toomey will send Johnson a delivery of Pittsburgh's Primanti Bros. sandwiches, topped with French fries, coleslaw and tomatoes.

If the Pittsburgh Steelers win, Johnson will pay up with an assortment of Wisconsin bratwurst, cheese and beer.

Johnson says that as a fiscal conservative he considered re-gifting the Chicago-style pizza and beer he won from Illinois Sen. Mark Kirk when the Packers beat the Chicago Bears. But he says that wouldn't highlight Wisconsin's fine products.

Toomey says the Pittsburgh sandwiches taste just as good as the upcoming Steelers victory.
