Walker still waiting for Quinn to deliver on bet

MADISON (AP) -- Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker has fulfilled his end of a bet over the Packers-Bears NFC championship game, but he's still waiting for Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn to come through.

Under terms of the bet, since the Bears lost Quinn was to deliver Illinois food to a Wisconsin food pantry while wearing a Packers jersey.

Walker followed through on the bet Monday, six months after the January game, handing out brats, cranberries, cherry pies and honey at a Kenosha food pantry.

Quinn spokeswoman Brooke Anderson says the governor "looks forward to making the trip soon," but offered no explanation as to why he hasn't already fulfilled the bet.

Quinn did meet another part of the bet by displaying a Packers flag outside his office earlier this year.
