And that’s why Sarah Palin is endorsing Greg Abbott for Texas governor. It’s because Ted Nugent is campaigning for him. What better reason could there be?
“If he is good enough for Ted Nugent, he is good enough for me!” Palin wrote in a Facebook post Wednesday.
Abbott, currently serving as the state’s attorney general and challenging Democrat Wendy Davis, came under fire this week after inviting Nugent to campaign with him. The musician recently made offensive remarks about the president, who he called a “subhuman mongrel” in a January interview.
Abbott said Nugent would be joining him on the trail to expose Davis’s position on gun rights and the musician already appeared at an event Tuesday.
Palin wrote that Abbott is “a believer in the power of liberty and the need to defend our freedoms from the overreach of an out-of-control federal government.”
