Jesse Ventura criticizes RFK Jr presidential campaign, says 'He chose money over votes'

Former Minnesota Governor and professional wrestler Jesse Ventura, popularly known as "The Body," recently voiced his disapproval of President Robert F. Kennedy Jr.'s decision to pass him over as a vice-presidential candidate during an interview with TMZ.

Ventura revealed that he met with Kennedy Jr. in Tucson, where the former revealed that he came in second place during the candidate's search for a running mate. Apparently, Kennedy Jr. met with several individuals before ultimately selecting Silicon Valley philanthropist and lawyer Nicole Shanahan, who is best known as the former wife of Google founder Sergey Brin.

While Ventura states that he respects Kennedy's decision, he felt that the choice ultimately boiled down to money instead of gaining more votes. He even alluded that Kennedy Jr. could have "put [Ventura] up there as an example" to other candidates and voted for candidates who aren't part of the system.

This is not the first time Ventura has gone public with his sentiments. Previously, during an episode of his YouTube show "The World According to Jesse," Ventura expressed his dislike for the system and recounted how he declined to run for the U.S. Senate in 2002 after party officials urged him to switch his party affiliation from independent to Democrat.

He ended his TMZ interview by teasing that he might consider running for the U.S. Senate again but as an independent candidate.

This revelation sheds light on the internal workings and decisions behind Robert F. Kennedy Jr.'s presidential campaign. It shows the weightiness of choosing a running mate and the consequences that may result from such decisions.
