No Ventura; no Stones

ST. PAUL -- Gov. Jesse Ventura, who isn't seeking a political encore, is no longer lobbying the Rolling Stones to add a Minnesota stop to their upcoming tour.

The Stones kick off a tour Sept. 3 in Boston but come no closer than Chicago. But Ventura said Wednesday that his decision to leave office also killed the Stones' drive.

Ventura said getting the Stones would have assured his re-election had he chosen to run.
