Minnesota Independence Party

Redirected from Independence Party of Minnesota

The Independence Party of Minnesota is the third largest party in Minnesota, behind the Minnesota Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party (DFL) (Affiilated with the national Democratic Party) and Republican Party. However, it is the political party of Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura (1999-2003), and has endorsed candidate and former Representative Tim Penny[?] for the 2002 gubernatorial election. The party has fielded candidates for most statewide races. It gained prominence when Ventura joined the party after leaving the Reform Party after the nomination of Pat Buchanan for President.

Its principles are Integrity, Dignity, Responsibility, Service and Community. In some ways it is similar to the Libertarian Party, but recognizes a larger role for government.
