WASHINGTON D.C. - Forget politics. It's all about the Packers for Wisconsin's senators this weekend.
 
Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) will head home to Oshkosh for the game.
 
"I feel pretty good about the game. I'll have all fingers and toes crossed," said Johnson.
 
Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) was unavailable for comment, but her press office said via email that she will be in the stands at FedEx Field to cheer on the Green and Gold.
 
When asked about good-natured ribbing among his colleagues, Johnson said it doesn't happen much. 
 
"Nobody really has an affiliation, nobody's from a state called Washington D.C., so there's just not a natural fan base in Congress for the Washington Redskins. No, we don't have any bets outstanding. I'll do that for the next game."
