MAHNOMEN (AP) -- Gov. Jesse Ventura received enthusiastic receptions as he traveled through Red Lake Falls, Fertile, Mahnomen, Callaway and Detroit Lakes on Day Two of his bus tour.
At each stop he discussed the need for more diversity in the rural economy and offered state help with current farm flooding in the area.
And in Callaway, he repeated his call for a unicameral legislature that meets every other year instead of every year.
''I have a new slogan: One house, one session,'' he said to a crowd of about 150 people on the main street of Callaway.
At Mahnomen, on the White Earth Indian Reservation, Ventura met with city and county officials and leaders of the White Earth Chippewa, including the Rev. Doyle Turner, who recently was elected tribal chairman and who will be sworn in Friday.
Ventura and tribal leaders discussed the tribe's need for more housing and economic development.
