Ted Nugent Considering 2018 Senate Run in Michigan

Rock legend Ted Nugent is not afraid to express his political views and stand up for gun rights in this country. Liberals hate his guts and conservatives love him, but there’s no doubt that Nugent is 100% Americana!

Nugent, who has never served in elected office, is now weighing a potential 2018 Senate run in Michigan, and what he said to the press will have Americans across the country smiling.

Speaking to The Daily Caller News Foundation, Nugent said “I’m always very interested in making my country and the great state of Michigan great again and there is nothing I wouldn’t do to help in any way I possibly can.”

President Trump pulled off a surprise victory over Hillary Clinton in Michigan, and if Nugent were to run for Senate he would face off against incumbent Senator Debbie Stabenow, who is in her 3rd term in the U.S. Senate.

Nugent recently took to his Facebook page to stress the importance of defeating Stabenow in 2018, further fueling speculation that he may challenge the Democrat:

More from The Daily Caller report:

Nugent said that he would have to determine if his candidacy could, “provide meaningful upgrades and improvements in the American quality of life for the most productive and truly needy amongst us.” He also mentioned the fact that he will be 70 years old in 2018, and said that “complete support” from his family is “imperative.”

If he does decide to run, Nugent said that his campaign slogan would be, “Make Michigan, Michigan again,” and he explained what that would mean. “My beloved birth state of Michigan still has godawful rules, laws and regulations that are more akin to Illinois, New York, New Jersey, Maryland and Massachusetts than the real Michigan so I remain poised to do what I can,” he explained.

Nugent said that his campaign song would be “a very loud ‘Stranglehold.'”

On a regular basis, Ted Nugent uses his public platform to promote his conservative political views, which drives the left furious. For example, back in 2015, Nugent blasted Barack and Obama for fueling racism in this country.

During the 2016 Democrat primary, Ted Nugent’s rebuttal of Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton’s advocacy for gun control resulted in the left literally losing its mind.

Who wouldn’t cheer for more of that?
