Jesse Ventura (born July 15, 1951, as James George Janos, which is still his legal name) was elected the 38th Governor of Minnesota on November 3, 1998, after a career as Navy SEAL, professional wrestler, actor, mayor, and radio talk show host. He ran as a candidate for the Reform Party of Minnesota (but joined the Independence Party of Minnesota when it broke from its association with the Reform Party of the United States of America) and "shocked the world," as he phrased it, when he narrowly, but unexpectedly beat the major-party candidates: St. Paul mayor Norm Coleman ( Republican) and Minnesota Attorney General Hubert H. "Skip" Humphrey III ( Democratic-Farmer-Labor). Ventura, who spent considerably less than his opponents, is widely regarded as one of the first candidates to effectively use the Internet in a political campaign. He served as governor from January 4, 1999, to January 6, 2003, without seeking a second term. ...more on Wikipedia about "Jesse Ventura"
