Rock star and activist Ted Nugent and his wife, Shemane, endorsed former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin in her campaign for Alaska’s at-large congressional seat.
“The great governor Sarah Palin embodies the spirit of the American Dream as envisioned by our founding fathers where we the people celebrate life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness,” the Nugents said in a statement. “This courageous woman represents the heart and soul of the best America has to offer and would certainly make Alaska and America great again.”
“Ted and Shemane Nugent are great Americans who live and breathe the independent spirit of Alaska, and I’m grateful for their endorsement,” Palin said. “As an avid hunter and outdoorsman, Ted understands, like I do, the importance of preserving and defending our God-given liberties. Shemane has overcome tremendous personal adversity to become a wildly successful fitness advocate, proving along the way that hard work and perseverance are still the bedrock of success.”
