In interviews on CNN's American Morning and ABC's Good Morning America this week to promote his new book, “63 Documents the Government Doesn’t Want You to Read,” former Minnesota governor Jesse Ventura said if Paul decides to run as an independent, he would strongly consider being his running mate.
Ventura describes Paul, who vied for the Republican nomination in 2008 and ran on the Libertarian Party ticket in 1988, as "the only federal elected official who will stand up for America on the congressional floor.”
But Ventura added that he would never run as a Republican or Democrat. "They are the problem, not the solution. We need to abolish political parties in this country," he said on GMA . . .
