Rocker Ted Nugent has endorsed GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney, according to a report in the Texas Tribune.

"After a long heart&soul conversation with Mitt Romney today, I concluded this goodman will properly represent we the people & I endorsed him," Nugent wrote on Twitter. However, he qualified that he would rather be backing Texas Governor Rick Perry, who has left the race.

“If the real Rick Perry had been at those debates, he would still be in the race,” Nugent explained. “It is my firm belief that Rick Perry would have [made] and would make the best president we could choose.”

Nugent told the Tribune that one big thing that makes Romney attractive is that he has pledged to him that there would be no new gun laws in his administration..

In an interview with Phoenix radio host Mike Broomhead, Nugent argued that Obama was an "America hater" and out to "destroy freedom."  He added that having Tim Geithner serve as Secretary of the Treasury was like have Jeffrey Dahmer run a children's playground.

According to the Houston Chronical, Nugent gave this general opinion of the state of the union.

“Basically, America is in a suicidal tailspin right now. Our government is out of control. The power abuse, the corruption, the insanity of spending money that will never exist… The conclusion based on all the evidence I can find is that Mitt Romney has the best shot at bringing the U.S. Constituion, common sense, and the American way back to the White House.”
