Nugent calls Kobach a ‘dear pig killin friend’

nugenttedRight-wing rocker Ted Nugent (in photo) used Facebook this week to make a campaign money pitch for Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, pairing his endorsement with a photo of the two taken, Nugent said, when they were “hunting hogs together in Texas just before we rallied to legalize helicopter pig hunting!” Nugent called Kobach “a major thorn in the side of Obama” who is “leading the states’ rights movement in America” and said “the leftists and commies are working overtime to defeat him in this year’s election.” In response to the post, Kobach’s challenger in the GOP primary, Scott Morgan, suggested “the self-appointed ‘guardian of state sovereignty’” should “start focusing on his job in Kansas.” (According to the Lawrence Journal-World, Kobach said feral hogs do significant damage to crops and that he worked in his spare time to help Nugent and Texas officials in 2011 with the legislation.) State Sen. David Haley, D-Kansas City, responded to the photo on Twitter with “SEPARATED AT BIRTH…?!”
