Former MN Gov. Ventura Endorses Gov. Walz for Re-Election
Former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura has endorsed Democratic Gov. Tim Walz for re-election.
The former pro wrestler, who was Minnesota’s governor from 1999 to 2003, said in a video today that he rarely makes endorsements, but said he is speaking out because this election is too important.
“Tim has shown through the past few years how important strong leadership is for our state,” said Ventura in the video. “When COVID-19 hit, Tim was there to keep our state safe. That’s the Governor’s most important job. Tim has proved he does what’s right for Minnesota – not what is politically easy.”
Ventura’s endorsement comes a day after former President Donald Trump endorsed Republican gubernatorial candidate Scott Jensen.
