Former Gov. Jesse Ventura told the St. Paul Pioneer Press today that he's backing IP candidate Tom Horner's campaign for governor. Ventura, who is a member of the IP, served as governor from 1999-2003. His victory in the 1998 election completely surprised the world.
"I urge people -- if they truly want change, it's in their power -- shock the world again." Vote Tom Horner in as governor," Ventura told the newspaper.
MPR's Tim Pugmire reports that Horner says Ventura will campaign with him between now and Election Daty.
