Why can’t a rock star be a senator? He would be the first to make the jump from the entertainment industry to politics. Al Franken, Jesse Ventura, Arnold Schwazenagger and of course
Donald Trump have made the switch. So Ted Nugent would not be a stretch. In an interview with The Daily Caller Uncle Ted said he would not rule out a 2018 Senate run. He added, “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.”

“Ted Nugent is definitely someone who is in Michigan, he is involved in the public debates here, and he was really there for Donald Trump when he was needed,” Scott Hagerstrom, State Director for the Donald Trump campaign told The Daily Caller.
“I would certainly welcome him giving it a hard look,” he said. “Ted [Nugent] would be the perfect person to tie together the Trump coalition,” Hagerstrom added.
The Constitution sets 3 parameters for one to run: they have to be 30 years old, a citizen of the US for at least 9 years, and when they are elected, must be a resident of the state they represent.
