Kevin Terrell, the endorsed Independence Party candidate for U.S. Senate, hopes to defeat Sen. Al Franken, pulling off an upset not seen in Minnesota since Jesse Ventura won the governor’s race.


Not that his background has much in common with Ventura; Terrell has extensive business and finance experience, and did a five-year stint as an intelligence analyst that has made him a vocal opponent of the National Security Agency spying on American citizens.
