Ventura has repeatedly said he would only run independent

And he said he would consider being Ron Paul's VP, but only if he wasn't a Republican.

That would have meant Ron Paul had to drop out of the Republican Party, which would have messed up Ron Paul's entire strategy.

The Republican Party hates Ventura; much more than Ron Paul.
