When pressed, Ventura said, “I won’t answer yes or no right now. But if I do run for president four years from now, I will run as an individual with no political party, so if you vote for me you don’t have the baggage of these two gangs coming along, and I make my own decisions, and I’m not beholden to these gangs running the country.”
It’s not the first time Ventura, who was promoting his book, DemoCRIPS and ReBLOODlicans, has publicly floated the idea of running for president. He made mentions of the possibility in a 1999 autobiography and earlier this month on a radio program.
