Jesse Ventura successfully dabbled in politics during the nineties. The Body served as the Governor of Minnesota from 1998 until 2002. He announced a political comeback in 2020, but a personal situation preventing him from pursuing his goal.

Ventura recently appeared on Talk Is Jericho podcast and announced his aspirations to contest the U.S. Presidential Elections in 2024. Ventura expressed his distrust for the Republicans and Democrats, noting that he’d want to run for candidacy with a new party.

“Now it’s more serious than ever. I mean, I dabbled with the Green Party two years ago ’til I found out they were split and were completely dysfunctional. But I’ve been communicating and working very close now with Andrew Yang, and Andrew Yang is the real deal and Andrew Yang is forming what’s going to be called the Forward Party.

“And we’re calling it that because we want to look forward into the future — we don’t want the past, we don’t want nothing to do with the [Democrats] and [Republicans]. They’re the past, this is going to be the Forward Party, and we’re hoping to get ballot access and candidates on the slate and have a presidential candidate and a convention by the 2024 election. And I’ll tell you why, Chris, right now, 60% of the country doesn’t want [Joe] Biden or [Donald] Trump.”

Elsewhere during the interview, Ventura revealed he was given full creative control by Russian President Vladimir Putin for his Russia Today show. RT has already been pulled from most major television providers in the wake of Russia’s unprovoked invasion of Ukraine.
