Gov. Mark Dayton’s bet with Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey gets off to bad start

The governors are betting on the three pro sports games this weekend between Minnesota and Arizona teams. 

The governors of Minnesota and Arizona have a bet: best two out of three in the games this week between pro teams from the two states.

Gov. Mark Dayton agreed to the Twitter challenge from Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey. Loser wears a jersey from one of the others state’s teams.

Dayton is one down after the Vikings’ loss Thursday to the Arizona Cardinals.

He’s still got a chance, though: The Wild play the Arizona Coyotes tonight in Arizona and the Timberwolves play the Phoenix Suns Sunday. That’s in Arizona, too.
