Ted Nugent v Kid Rock? Both May Run for Same Senate Seat in 2018

”I’m always very interested in making my country and the great state of Michigan great again,“ Nugent says

Ted Nugent says he’s mulling a run for Michigan’s Senate seat in 2018 — the same seat for which Kid Rock may be a contender.

“If these GOP sonsabitches don’t get it right this time I will come charging in as the ultimate WE THE PISSED OFF PEOPLE Mr FixIt Consitutional firebreathing shitkicker candidate from hell!” Nugent said on his Facebook page on Tuesday.

He was more reserved in an interview with The Daily Caller, telling the conservative site: “I’m always very interested in making my country and the great state of Michigan great again. There is nothing I wouldn’t do to help in any way I possibly can.”

As TheWrap previously reportedKid Rock is being eyed as a potential candidate for the job. His name was suggested at the Michigan Republican Party convention last weekend, but no official decisions have been made, according to RollCall.com.

Michigan’s 2018 U.S. Senate race is drawing attention because the state voted Republican in the 2016 presidential election for the first time in nearly three decades. Both Rock and Nugent supported the winning candidate, Donald Trump.

The winner of the Republican primary — whether it’s Rock, Nugent, or, you know, a regular politician — would face off against Democrat Sen. Debbie Stabenow, who has held her seat since 2000.
