Jesse Ventura, the former Governor of Minnesota, is seriously considering running for president in 2016 with Howard Stern as his VP.
Ventura spoke to InfoWar’s Alex Jones about the possibility, making it obvious that he is likely to move forward with a Ventura-Stern ticket.
Jones said, “If this does happen, strap yourselves in. This will be the biggest political shakeup since Ross Perot ran for president in 1992.”
Stern will be asked to join Ventura as his VP on Wednesday, when Ventura appears as a guest on the radio star’s show.
The duo could work perfectly together; Ventura refuses to take money from special interest groups, but Stern’s Sirius XM radio show pulls in around $100 million each year. Naturally, Stern would be a major asset in terms of raising funds.
Stern would also be a media treasure for the campaign, since he could potentially continue his XM show during the presidential run. The FCC has restrictions on candidates broadcasting during campaigns, but these rules do not apply to satellite radio.
Although Stern’s background is in media, he does have some experience with political campaigns. He ran for Governor of New York in 1994 as a libertarian.
A Ventura-Stern ticket would likely be very liberty-friendly. Ventura typically does not fit neatly inside one political party’s box, and has described his views as being “fiscally conservative and socially liberal.”
In fact, the duo could very well take the official Libertarian Party nomination.
