CHICAGO, IL – Senator Mark Kirk (R-Ill.) released the following statement on his friendly wager with Senator Rob Portman (R-Ohio) on the 2016 World Series between the Chicago Cubs and the Cleveland Indians:
“I look forward to enjoying a Great Lakes beer after the Cubs fly the W,” said Senator Kirk.
“This has been an incredible year for the city of Cleveland,” Portman said. “The Cavs ended a long championship drought and now the Indians have the opportunity to do the same. I’m looking forward to celebrating an Indians World Series victory with a Goose Island beer.”
