As he does every four years, former Minnesota governor Jesse Ventura has recently publicly mulled a run for the presidency of the United States. This time, he says any such run would take place on the Libertarian Party’s ballot line.
The Libertarian Party of Minnesota’s executive committee isn’t buying. In a press release issued this morning, the LPNM EC states:
Due to conflict and contrast to core principles of the Libertarian Party of Minnesota, including but not limited to his proven legacy of government growth having measurable negative economic impacts that last to this day, the LPMN Executive Committee hereby declares that former (Reform Party/Independence Party) Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura, shall not receive support from this body at any point in his potential bid to become the 2016 Presidential nominee of the Libertarian National Committee.
We furthermore request that the LNC not invite Mr. Ventura to appear at the 5/28/16 national convention nor participate in the 4/1/16 televised Fox Business News LNC Presidential debate.
