Ted Nugent, hunter, musician and Second Amendment advocate, today endorsed Tommy Thompson for U.S. Senate calling the former governor "a champion of gun owner rights."
"I am thrilled to announce my endorsement of Tommy Thompson for Senate," said Nugent. "Tommy Thompson is a true patriot and champion of gun owner rights, and Wisconsin's pro-Second Amendment community will be well served by his stewardship in the U.S. Senate.
"During his tenure as governor, Tommy fought the gun control lobby to sign landmark pieces of legislation, which Wisconsin's gun owners still appreciate and remember to this day."
Governor Thompson said that he is grateful for Nugent's endorsement and commended the gun owner advocate for his work on behalf of conservationist causes.
