RACHEL MARTIN, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Rachel Martin. It is the Easter season. And many Christians give something up for Lent. Leandra Ruiz of Texas decided to quit beer. Then, in a cruel twist of fate, Ruiz found out she won a contest. And the prize? A whole lot of beer delivered to her doorstep by the Budweiser Clydesdales. All was not lost. Ruiz got to go with Clydesdales on a ride around the block. And she'll get to sample her prize soon enough because as we all know, nothing says Easter brunch like an ice cold Bud. It's MORNING EDITION.
