Ted Nugent is reportedly considering a run for the United States Senate in Michigan in 2018.

“I’m always very interested in making my country and the great state of Michigan great again, and there is nothing I wouldn’t do to help in any way I possibly can,” Nugent told The Daily Caller on Wednesday.
 

The interview came after the musician and conservative activist responded to an article by Brandon Hall, managing editor of West Michigan Politics, speculating about a possible 2018 Senate run by Nugent.

Nugent responded on Facebook, saying that if Republicans don't "get it right this time I will come charging in as the ultimate WE THE PISSED OFF PEOPLE Mr FixIt Consitutional [sic] firebreathing shitkicker candidate from hell!"

But, Nugent isn't the only celebrity musician whose name is being tossed around as a possible Senate contender.

Kid Rock, whose real name is Robert Ritchie, also has been mentioned as a possible candidate, The Daily Caller said, adding that Nugent has been more vocal about politics.

“What sort of anti-American fool doesn’t believe we need secure borders?” Nugent asked, according to The Daily Caller. “What sort of Michael Moore freak sides with criminals instead of law enforcement heroes?

“Who on God’s good green earth can possibly support the redistribution of hard working Americans’ earnings to people unwilling to earn their own way?” he continued. “We the people are justifiably fed up with ‘Fedzilla’ and bureaucrats of every stripe.”

The two celebrities have been well received by the Michigan Republican Party.

"There's a lot of excitement here in Michigan, and we think Ted Nugent would be a great candidate to win against Debbie Stabenow," Michigan GOP spokeswoman Sarah Anderson told Fox News. She also said Kid Rock would be "awesome."

Twitter users reacted to the possibility of a celebrity candidate.
