Through Arlington school board candidate Hunter Crow's post on the GPTX Facebook page, I learned this morning that apparently Jesse Ventura wants to run for president as a Green. The key word is "apparently," because it isn't self-evident that Ventura had anything to do with the creation of the website.
Still, The Governing Body has recently spoken in speculative terms about a presidential run.
As of now, the Jesse Ventura 2020 site is a bit rudimentary:
- The title of the main and only page doesn't even get his name right: my browser tab says Jesse Venture 2020.
- It has space reserved for the Green Party Banner, but the webmaster has not added the banner image yet.
- There are representations of his top three issues: stopping US military madness, ending the war on drugs, and truly reforming campaign finance. If your pet issue or litmus test for voting is Medicare for All, you may have to wait for the site to be fully fleshed out.
- The page's main feature, found near the bottom, is a clunkily edited video collage of some of Ventura's media appearances that illustrate his evolution into a Green supporter.
This Facebook page looks even less legitimate.
