That Time Jesse ‘The Body’ Ventura Was Elected Governor Of Minnesota | FiveThirtyEight
Good little mini-documentary on how he won by FiveThirtyEight.
Here’s the other thing many overlook about Jesse. Love him or hate him, agree or disagree, he either a) kept every promise he made when running or b) fought tooth and nail against a hostile legislature to do so.
The shiny new light rail we have here in the Twin Cities? Jesse. Concealed carry of firearms for licensed citizens? Jesse. Surplus tax refunds? Jesse. He did not get his legalized pot and prostitution but it isn’t because he did not try damn hard.
What other elected official can you say worked hard to do everything they promised to get elected? Very few and none I can name off hand beyond Jesse.
