Ted Nugent endorses Jessica Taylor’s U.S. Senate effort

Friday, U.S. Senate hopeful Jessica Taylor announced she earned the endorsement of rock star and Second Amendment activist Ted Nugent.

According to a release, Nugent endorsed Taylor while attending his Constitution Day celebration in Centreville, Mich.

“The Nugent family, we endorse Jessica Taylor because she will bring back the real America that we all love,” Nugent said in a press release. “Jessica is a freedom warrior unlike other candidates, and I think she’s the one worth your vote because she’ll never back down to the America-hating mob or spineless, soulless RINOs. Jessica Taylor is the true conservative outsider running for Senate and I know she will be a fighter that will always ring the bells of freedom for us.”

“I am proud to receive the endorsement of a conservative firebrand like Ted Nugent,” Taylor said. “I’m running to fight for our shared conservative principles that were enshrined into our Constitution and to fight to protect America from the radical left’s socialist power grab.”

Taylor is one of four declared candidates vying for the GOP nod for next year’s U.S. Senate election, which is a field that also includes U.S. Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Huntsville), former Business Council of Alabama CEO Katie Britt and former U.S. Ambassador to Slovenia Lynda Blanchard.

Republican voters will cast a ballot for their preference on May 24, 2022.
