The friendly #IceBucketChallenge that’s got everyone on social media dousing themselves with cold water just got real: Roll Call Editor-in-Chief Christina Bellantoni has officially thrown down.

Bellantoni has now passed the baton to fellow newshounds Julie Mason, host of the P.O.T.U.S. Press Pool on SiriusXM radio and CNN correspondent Erin McPike.
The Bad News Babes vet also made sure to draw Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla. — co-captain of the opposing squad in the annual congressional women’s softball game — into the mix.
“I have to keep our rivalry alive,” Bellantoni quipped.
Congresswoman, the clock is now ticking.
