Ted Nugent signs on to Texas GOP campaign team

AUSTIN — Former state Rep. Sid Miller signed Detroit rocker and self-proclaimed “Madman” Ted Nugent onto his campaign for agriculture commissioner Tuesday, hoping to put a stranglehold on a relatively low-profile statewide seat.

Miller, looking to boost his visibility in the race that also includes Texas musician and humorist Kinky Friedman as a Democratic candidate, reached an agreement to designate the outspoken and controversial Nugent as his campaign's treasurer and co-chair Tuesday afternoon.

A spokesman said the two are in the process of filing the necessary paperwork with the Texas Ethics Commission. Miller did not immediately return a request for comment Tuesday.

Nugent claimed Miller, R-Stephenville, as an “American blood brother” in a letter prior to being signed on, according to a media report. Nugent's role may be largely ceremonial, but his name recognition alone could be a boost for the candidate.

3. Wow. I didn't think there was anyone stupid enough to sign up Ted Nugent as a campaign treasurer.

This should be good.
