Gov. Nikki Haley hopes to add to South Carolina's population of encased meats in a wager with Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker on the Capital One Bowl.
Haley has bet barbecue and beer to Walker's bratwursts, cheese and beer in Wednesday's clash between the Gamecocks and Badgers.
The Palmetto State guv is already bragging -- just look at the opening line of her office's news release:
Confident that the University of South Carolina will win their New Year’s Day matchup with the University of Wisconsin in the Capital One Bowl ...No word on a wager between Haley and Ohio Gov. John Kasich in the Orange Bowl battle between her alma mater, Clemson, and Ohio State on Friday.
We suggest buckeyes for pecans -- or Cleveland for Greenville.
The Buckeye state boss backed down from the offer of a bet with Haley, who again did not miss an opportunity for a boast.
