Washington, D.C. – On Monday, Congressman Mark Meadows (R-NC) and Congressman Ken Buck (R-Colo.) announced a friendly wager on the outcome of Super Bowl 50 as a way to highlight the importance of the agriculture industry.

In the unlikely event of a Carolina Panthers win, Congressman Buck will treat Congressman Meadows to some locally-raised, mouth-watering 4th Congressional District steak. The beef industry, along with many others, provides jobs across the district and is hurt by government overreach.

If the Broncos continue their streak of dominance and triumph over the Panthers on Sunday, Congressman Meadows agreed to serve up North Carolina Barbecue.

“They say defense wins championships, which is why I'm confident in a Broncos victory," said Buck, a former college football player himself.  "I'm looking forward to sampling North Carolina Barbecue.”

Rep. Ken Buck (CO-04) is the Freshman Class President. He serves on the House Judiciary Committee and the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.  He serves on the OGR Subcommittees on Government Operations and the Interior and is a member of the Judiciary Subcommittees on Immigration and Border Security and Crime, Terrorism, Homeland Security and Investigations.
