Romney sought Nugent's endorsement


It was on a phone call with the candidate earlier today that Nugent gave his blessing. He talked to Romney by phone while he was at a sporting goods store in Michigan "celebrating the orgy of guns and ammos and bows and arrows and camouflage clothing and hunting and fishing and outdoor family supplies."

Before endorsing him, Nugent demanded that Romney pledge there would be no new gun laws or restrictions on Second Amendment rights in his administration. Romney obliged. Nugent also warned Romney about the "out of control" U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service.

"These are not Ted Nugent demands," he said. "They're logic demands. They're 'we the people' demands. They're right over wrong, good over bad."

1. Let Romney carry Nugent until November and let people see what he's really about.

2. They should go far together.

Far, far, away...

Nugent described himself as an "improvise, adapt, and overcome" guy and said he doesn't begrudge Romney for positions he has taken in the past. For example, while Nugent admits to being "offended and repulsed" when Romney signed off on an assault weapons ban during his time as governor, he understood the context given Romney's location at the time.

"He was in Massachusetts," Nugent said. "He wasn't in America."
