Tommy Thompson's campaign for Senate in Wisconsin has rolled out a celebrity robocall, featuring rocker Ted Nugent. Thompson faces a Republican primary on Aug. 14, pitting the former four-term governor and George W. Bush Cabinet member against three other opponents.
"This is Ted Nugent calling to support Governor Tommy Thompson to represent the great people — the great 'We The People' — of Wisconsin. I'm a blood brother of the spirit of Wisconsin, and Tommy Thompson represents America, Wisconsin, the U.S. Constitution, the Bill of Rights, the Golden Rule, and the Ten Commandments, perfectly.
"He is a great man, a great American, and a great Wisconsinite. Wisconsin needs this kind of upgrade now, and Tommy Thompson is just the man to bring quality-of-life upgrade to the great people of Wisconsin. I rock and roll, and hunt, and celebrate the positive energy and grand spirit of Wisconsin, and Tommy Thompson is a blood-brother of working hard, playing hard, productive people of good will and decency throughout the Badger State. God bless Wisconsin, and God bless Tommy Thompson. This is Ted Nugent, and I absolutely believe in my message to my friends up there. Godspeed."
