MN: Ventura to stop at Ron Paul's 'shadow convention'

11:35 AM

From ABC News' Political Radar:
In video on his website today, [Republican Ron] Paul announced that former Minneapolis Governor and professional wrestler, erstwhile Mexico surfer dude and anti-establishment independent politics rock star Jesse Ventura, even though he has ruled out a bid to shake up the US Senate race in Minnesota and is in no way a Republican, will take part in the rally.

The Rally for the Republic on Sept. 2 at the Target Center (holds 18,000 and 7,000 tickets have been sold according to a Paul staffer) in Minneapolis, is set to caps off a week of activities sponsored by Paul's new Political Action group, the Campaign for Liberty.
And while Ron Paul is securing new guests for his convention, National Republican Congressional Committee chair U.S. Rep. Tom Cole, R-Okla., is looking to make the St. Paul GOP convention guest list shorter.

The Hill reports:
The NRCC chief discouraged candidates from attending the national convention in Minneapolis-St. Paul, saying that spending days there would be a "waste of time," and they would be better off campaigning.
