Ventura officially joined the Green Party last month and “tested the waters” for a presidential run. He ultimately decided not to run and said he would support the Green Party’s candidates.
The Green Party selects its presidential nominee on July 11. According to Wikipedia, union leader and Green Party co-founder Howie Hawkins has 173 delegates out of the necessary 189 delegates required for the nomination.
