WASHINGTON, Oct. 31 (UPI) -- Obama advisor David Axelrod told MSNBC's "Morning Joe" he will shave his mustache if the president loses in Minnesota, Michigan or Pennsylvania.

Axelrod told host Joe Scarborough he will come on the program and shave his "mustache of 40 years" if President Barack Obama loses any of the states, which have trended Democratic in recent elections, to Republican nominee Mitt Romney, Politico reported Wednesday.

Scarborough, a former Republican congressman, responded to the wager by agreeing to grow a mustache if Obama wins North Carolina or Florida in the Nov. 6 election.
