Two Republicans have won the 2018 Roll Call March Madness tournaments. With the Villanova Wildcats’ 79–62 victory over the University of Michigan Wolverines on Monday night, Rep. Patrick Meehan is the winner of this year’s men’s tournament.

The Pennsylvania Republican joins Indiana Rep. Jackie Walorski, winner of the women’s tournament after the Notre Dame Fighting Irish’s win over the Mississippi State Bulldogs on Sunday, as the bosses of this year’s brackets.

Congratulations to both members and schools!
