Gov of Texas, California make World Series wager
LOS ANGELES - Texas Gov. Greg Abbott is betting that the Houston Astros will beat the Los Angeles Dodgers in the World Series.
The Republican is promising to send California Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown a six-pack of Houston-brewed beer and Texas barbeque if the Dodgers prevail.
Abbott's office says Brown is offering "a selection of wine from wineries in Sonoma, Napa and Mendocino regions" impacted by wildfires if the Astros win. Abbott also plans to make a donation to California wildfire recovery efforts, win or lose.
