The Vegas Golden Knights came up short in their quest for the Stanley Cup, which meant one Nevada congresswoman had to make good on a bet with a colleague.

Rep. Dina Titus wore a t-shirt supporting Washington D.C. statehood, satisfying the bet she made with Eleanor Holmes Norton, the capital's delegate to Congress.

"I thank Dina and her Golden Knights for a hard-fought series," Norton said in a statement. "Despite her already public support for D.C. statehood, I was delighted to see Dina and her staff 'rocking the red' in 'Statehood for D.C.' shirts."

Titus also gifted Norton a basket of items from the Las Vegas area, including chocolate from Ethel M, beer from CraftHaus Brewery and playing cards from a local casino.

Titus and Norton announced their bet before the Stanley Cup Final began between the Knights and the Washington Capitals. Norton would have opposed Yucca Mountain re-licensing if Vegas emerged victorious.
