Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura appointed an independent to temporarily fill the vacant seat of the late Democratic Sen. Paul Wellstone yesterday, upsetting - for the moment - the partisan makeup of the U.S. Senate. Ventura selected Dean Barkley, 52, the state's planning commissioner and an early adviser to Ventura, leaving the Senate deadlocked with 49 Republicans, 49 Democrats and two independents. Before Wellstone's death, Democrats had a one-vote edge. The political implications of appointing Barkley, a self-described fiscal conservative with a social libertarian philosophy, are not clear.

CANNON FALLS, Minn.-At a heavily attended fund-raiser for gubernatorial candidate Tim Penny here the other night, Gov. Jesse Ventura, the man Penny seeks to replace as the champion of Minnesota's political independents, was in his usual self-congratulatory form. Towering over the microphone, Ventura reminded Penny and the crowd that in his 1998 upset victory he was at 10 percent in the polls before the election against established Democratic and Republican candidates. "Don't believe the polls," he advised.
