WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Kevin Cramer met with Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro (D-CT) in his office Wednesday to settle up on the friendly wager they made on the outcome of the NCAA Hockey National Championship game in Tampa, Florida, Saturday, April 9. 

The University of North Dakota Fighting Hawks defeated the Quinnipiac University Bobcats of Hamden, Conn., to clinch their eighth national title by a score of 5 to 1.  

DeLauro delivered to Cramer’s staff beer from the No Worries Brewing Company in Hamden, Conn.  In the unlikely event that the Bobcats would have won, Cramer would have treated DeLauro’s staff to a box of Chippers chocolate covered potato chips from Widman’s Candy Shop in Grand Forks.

During their meeting, Cramer and DeLauro shared with each other how important hockey, especially at the NCAA collegiate level, is to the constituents in their districts.

Cramer congratulated the UND team on the national championship in a speech on the floor of the House of Representatives on April ­­13.
