TED NUGENT To Run For U.S. Senate?
Controversial rocker, outspoken conservative and gun-rights activist Ted Nugent is being mentioned as a possible candidate for the U.S. Senate representing the Illinois Republican Party.
"He grew up in Arlington Heights. He went to St. Viator High School," said Cook County Republican Chair Gary Skoien, according to the Internet Broadcasting Systems. "He has more connection to Illinois than Hillary Clinton had to New York, and he's been a very articulate spokesperson on constitutional issues. He would be a very interesting candidate."
The original candidate, Jack Ryan, left the race after allegations surfaced that he forced his former wife to go to sex clubs.
Nugent has yet to issue an official comment on the report.
