Libertarian presidential candidate and former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson has a new tag team partner: former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura, the onetime wrestling star who went by the stage name “The Body.”

Mr. Johnson announced Friday that Mr. Ventura — also known for his role in the 1987 blockbuster film “Predator” — is part of a “all-star lineup” that will join him next week at the “Rally for Jobs, Opportunity and Diversity” event at New York University.
