Ventura endorses Horner for governorSubmitted by northstar on Sat, 10/23/2010 - 17:21
Saying Minnesotans should "shock the world again," former Gov. Jesse Ventura on Friday endorsed Independence Party candidate Tom Horner for governor.
"I urge people — if they truly want change, it's in their power — shock the world again. Vote Tom Horner in as governor," the first and only IP governor said in an interview with the Pioneer Press.
"That will have a much bigger effect than electing a Democrat or Republican. If you elect a Democrat or Republican, you're just going along with the status quo, business as usual," Ventura said.
Ventura said Democrats and Republicans have "created this mess that we're in. Why would we look to them to solve it when they're the creators of it?"
