As noted at US news sites that day, Ted Nugent endorsed Romney as his GOP presidential candidate in the upcoming election to run against President Barack Obama, who is running for his second term.

“after a long heart&soul conversation with MittRomney today I concluded this goodman will properly represent we the people & I endorsed him.” Ted Nugent (@tednugent) tweeted about two hours ago.

Nugent, 63, who originally rose to fame after being the lead guitarist of The Amboy Dukes in the 60s and 70s and later went on for a solo career, is also known for being a conservative and a gun rights advocate.

According to reports, this is the first time that Ted Nugent, a native of Detroit, Michigan, had publicly endorsed a presidential candidate but he revealed last year that he is choosing between President Obama and Rick Perry, who withdrew his candidacy before the South Carolina primary.

“I’m wango-tango giddy for an Obama-versus-Perry presidential brawl. In one corner is Barack ‘Hope and Change’ Obama, and in the other corner is Rick ‘Proven Results’ Perry.” Nugent wrote at The Washington Times in an article on August 2011.

Apparently, there were speculations in various years that Nugent may run for governor of Michigan but it did not happen. Nevertheless, he has been a longtime supporter of Republican Party politicians.
