Butler may have lost a heartbreaker to Duke in the NCAA championship, but the congressman who represents the school isn't holding any grudges.

Rep. Andre Carson (D-Ind.) said he will support a resolution congratulating Duke on winning the tournament. The vote should happen sometime this afternoon.

“I’ll vote to support the resolution honoring the Blue Devils. It’s the classy thing to do…and I represent the classiest college basketball program in America," Carson said in a statement.

“But mark my word. The Bulldogs will continue to win their way—the Butler Way. And they’ll be back running with the big dogs next year.”
