WASHINGTON, DC—In the spirit of Ravens pride, Rep. Andy Harris (MD-1) is challenging Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy of California’s 23rd District to a friendly wager that the Baltimore Ravens will defeat the San Francisco 49ers in Superbowl XLVII on Sunday. Majority Whip McCarthy will send over a box of Dewar’s taffy from Bakersfield, CA when the Ravens bring home the Lombardi Trophy. In the off chance that the Ravens do not win, Rep. Harris has agreed to send him Maryland’s finest crab cakes.
Here’s their exchange on Twitter from this morning:
.@GOPWhip countdown to @Ravens whoopin the @49ers is 6 days. I bet you MD's finest crab cakes that we bring home Lombardi Sunday
.@RepAndyHarrisMD Can’t wait to enjoy bc #niners won’t be stopped. If #ravens pull if off, Bakersfield’s own, Dewar’s Taffy will be your way
.@GOPWhip it’s on!
Statement from Rep. Harris:
“I’ve heard great things about Dewar’s candy. I can’t wait to enjoy their taffy. The sweetest victory will be Sunday, though, when the Ravens defeat the 49ers and bring the Lombardi Trophy back home to Baltimore.”
