The Motor City Madman is backing Tom Leonard for Attorney General. 

That's what Ted Nugent said in a statement earlier this week, praising Speaker Leonard as a fighter for liberty.

"Michigan is a state full of strong, hardworking people with even stronger values," Nugent said. "People who love liberty and freedom. People who want to make sure we protect these values and defend our God-given rights. The best way to do that is by getting behind the people who understand our constitutional rights and care about them as much as we do.

Tom Leonard is the only candidate for attorney general who will listen to us, stand up for those rights and defend our constitution. He is a good man who understands what we’re fighting for, and he is the best choice for the people of Michigan.”

Nugent has also endorsed Bill Schuette for Governor, and Bob Young for US Senate...

Leonard has received numerous endorsements for his campaign to replace the term limited Bill Schuette as Michigan's Attorney General. 

So far, his only opponent is State Senator Tonya Schuitmaker. Leonard defeated Schuitmaker at the Mackinac Republican Leadership Conference straw poll, receiving nearly 70% of the vote.

  1. So Tom Leonard has the endorsement of an admitted draft-dodger, who doesn't live in Michigan, and is also a racist. Leonard must be very proud.
