MILWAUKEE (AP) - Gov. Scott Walker laid down the challenge, and two fellow Republicans delivered.

As part of a charity fundraiser, the governor posted a video on Facebook on Thursday showing himself and his wife Tonette getting ice water dumped on them. Then he challenges three fellow Republicans - Sen. Ron 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.

Priebus tweeted a video in which someone pours water on him and then he jumps into a lake.

A Ryan spokesman says the congressman will to pass, but is donating $100 to charity.
