“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, echoing President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign slogan, told The Daily Caller News Foundation.

Nugent — whose hits include the hard-rocking “Cat Scratch Fever” and psychedelic tune “Journey to the Center of the Mind” — also teased a possible run in a profanity-filled post on Facebook:
