ST. PAUL - Republican Norm Coleman is discounting the possibility of Jesse Ventura entering the race for U.S. Senate, as the former third-party Minnesota governor has suggested during his book tour.

During a Minnesota Public Radio call-in show Friday, Coleman blew off the notion Ventura would take him on. Coleman said Ventura is merely trying to sell books.

He said Minnesota voters would look at a Ventura candidacy differently this time around.

"We've seen that movie," he said. "I do not think the box office for the sequel would be very large."
