Mitt Romney is declining a challenge from Rep. Tom Tancredo to drop out of the presidential race if the Colorado Rockies win the World Series.

Tancredo of Colorado, also a Republican presidential hopeful, said several weeks ago that he would decide whether he would run again for his seat in the U.S. House of Representatives when the Colorado Rockies finished their run.

Now the baseball team has stunned everyone and is playing the Red Sox in the World Series.

So Tancredo has another proposal, this time including the former Massachusetts governor. He told FOX News that he challenged Romney that if the Red Sox win the series, Tancredo will drop out of the presidential stakes, but if the Rockies win, Romney has to quit.

The Red Sox won the first game in the series Monday night, 13-1.

Asked if he'd take the challenge, a campaign official not-so-sportingly responded, "Governor Romney is running to win."
