When California Democrat Rep. Eric Swalwell — who once accused Texas GOP Senator Ted Cruz of “defending Nazis” — challenged Cruz with a bet on the upcoming playoff game between the Dallas Cowboys and the San Francisco 49ers, Cruz fired back a stinging response.
The Cowboys and 49ers face off in the NFC Divisional Round on Sunday, the ninth time the two teams have met each other in playoffs.
“I will make this open bet to @tedcruz — if the @dallascowboys beat the @49ers I won’t tweet for the rest of January. If the @49ers win you can’t tweet for rest of January. How Texan are you, Ted? Deal?” Swalwell tweeted.
