RELEASE: Khanna, Pelosi Announce Super Bowl Wager with Cleaver
WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Rep. Ro Khanna (D-CA) and Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announced the details of two friendly wagers with Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-MO) over Super Bowl LIV between the San Francisco 49ers and the Kansas City Chiefs. Rep. Khanna has offered a basket of Ghirardelli chocolates, Rep. Cleaver has wagered some world-famous Kansas City barbecue and Russell Stover chocolates, and the Speaker has wagered a selection of California delicacies, including See’s Candies, Ghirardelli Chocolate, walnuts and pistachios.
“Looking forward to watching our 49ers sail to victory this Sunday against the Chiefs,” said Rep. Ro Khanna. “Proud to represent such a strong, smart team from the heart of Silicon Valley. I hope Rep. Cleaver is ready to send over some sweet chocolates.”
“While I always welcome the chance to share some of California and the Bay Area’s outstanding delicacies with my colleagues, Congressman Cleaver will just have to visit our beautiful city to get his hands on them,” said Speaker Nancy Pelosi. “The Chiefs are an outstanding team, but nothing matches the spirit, talent and heart that our incredible San Francisco 49ers bring to the field every game. The only thing that I’ll savor more than Kansas City’s famous BBQ is watching the 49ers become Super Bowl Champions!”
“The 49ers have proven to be an exceptional team this season, but they haven’t faced Patrick Mahomes, the Legion of Zoom, or the gritty Kansas City defense,” said Congressman Emanuel Cleaver. “After fifty years of waiting, this Sunday we will see the Chiefs bring a Lombardi trophy back home to Chiefs Kingdom. As Kansas Citians celebrate in the streets, I look forward to enjoying some of Silicon Valley’s finest chocolates, courtesy of Congressman Khanna.”
