Will the inevitable Bachmann/Barbour GOP ticket be getting some competition if an independent Paul/Ventura ticket next November?
Probably not, but reasonable probability should never get in the way of a good speculation…
Jesse Ventura's publicist confirms he'd consider running on the same ticket with Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, if he ran as an independent, but Paul’s camp has yet to respond to the suggestion.
"He said he would consider running with him," Says Jen Hobbs, who's organizing Ventura’s current book tour. "If Paul ran as a Republican, Jesse would run as independent on same ticket. Or if Paul switched to Independent, he would seriously consider it."
I am certain that Rep. Paul will be extremely excited to hear this once somebody explains to him who Jesse Ventura is.
I'm kidding… I'm kidding…
He won't be excited.
