MPR’s Michael Khoo presents highlights of four years with Governor Jesse Ventura, and Minnesota's brief experiment with three-party government.
In 1998, Ventura took Minnesota and the nation by surprise, delivering an upset victory that few political observers had predicted….and very little that followed was predictable, either. The Ventura years were marked by some notable policy successes. But they're likely to be most remembered for the governor's frequent flamboyance, his occasional outbursts, and his constant celebrity.
This is one of a two-part series.
