MILWAUKEE (AP) – Gov. Scott Walker laid down the challenge, and Sen. Ron Johnson delivered.
As part of a charity fundraiser, the Republican governor posted a video on Facebook on Thursday showing himself and his wife Tonette getting a tub of ice water dumped on them. He then challenges three fellow Republicans – Johnson, Rep. Paul Ryan and Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus – to follow suit.
Johnson tweeted video of himself Friday doing just that. He’s standing by a river and says he’s camping in the Utah mountains. Then he fills a coffeepot with stream water and douses himself. In his tweet he also challenges three conservative radio talk-show hosts.
Priebus tweeted to Walker, “Ok you’re on pal…” but hasn’t posted video of himself doing it.
A message left with a Ryan spokesman was not immediately returned.
