Following up on his earlier Minnesota Post report, Doug Grow says ex-Sen. Dean Barkley won “that big Wednesday golf match” against ex-Gov. Jesse Ventura. “If you’ll recall,” Grow writes, “the winner of the match supposedly would NOT run for Senate as an Independent candidate against Republican Norm Coleman and DFLer Al Franken. So will Ventura run?”
Barkley said, “If he feels like it. … We talked about it. He hasn’t changed. Part of him wants to, but part of him doesn’t want to leave the lifestyle he has now. He’ll make up his mind at the last minute.” Filing ends on July 15.
