Ted Nugent is ready to serve his country, or in the office or as a musician.
The outspoken rock guitarist addressed rumors that began swirling in February that he was planning to run for the Senate in 2018.
“Well, I’m a terminal of ‘we the people American patriot’, and I think that I doing the most important political task in the world, and that is participating in the fearful experiment of self-government and demanding constitutional accountability from our elected employees,” he said on “Fox & Friends.”
He added, “There is no limit to what I would like to do to help make this country great.”
He is still mulling over a possible run for the Senate, and is discussing his options with his “Republican friends.”

“I’m a hell raiser,” he said. “I am what the Founding Fathers wanted all Americans to be…and it is all about the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, the Ten Commander, the Golden Rule is the best that you can be, earning your own way.”
He added sarcastically, “Wow, I’m a radical.”
While the 69-year-old weighs up his options, he is happy to finally be a “hell raiser in the White House.”
He praised President Trump’s efforts since assuming the presidency.
“[Places] America first, make America great again, the job security, the security of the border. You know, it’s so simple, even guitar players can figure it out,” he said of Trump’s priorities.
“If you don’t piss off the idiots, you’re an idiot,” he added of Trump’s critics. “He is not an idiot; He will drive the morons crazy so I am so proud of him.”
Michigan GOP press officer Sarah Anderson told Fox News in February that they have not spoken with Nugent, but that “Ted Nugent would be a great candidate to win against Debbie Stabenow.”
