Jesse Ventura to 'test the waters' of Green Party presidential bid

Former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura is going to "test the waters" for a Green Party presidential bid.

"IF I were going to run for president, the GREEN party would be my first choice. I've endorsed the party and I'm testing the waters," Ventura tweeted Monday morning.

Ventura said in the fall that he would consider running in 2020 and told MPR then that he wouldn't make up his mind until later, possibly in June. The Green Party is slated to select its nominee in July.

"To be clear: I haven't filed anything," Ventura wrote Monday. "I authorized a letter of interest that was sent on my behalf to the Greens and I'm testing the waters for Green Party nomination. I'm an independent. I'm not a Democrat or a Republican because I know they're not the solution."

If Ventura enters the fray, he could bring name recognition that the current Green Party front-runner lacks. Howie Hawkins is leading in the primaries for the party's nomination. Hawkins is a retired Teamster and organizer who has run for office about two dozen times. Every bid has been unsuccessful.

A real match, not one that Trump "had" with... was it CNN?

6. We don't need another one in over their head.

Look at our country since the millennium began.

Sorry, Meat Loaf. Two out of three is disastrous.

Three out of four is the end of civilization.
