Nugent is known for making controversial comments about Democrats and President Barack Obama in particular.
Just last month, he called the president a "subhuman mongrel" in an interview with Guns.com.
"I have obviously failed to galvanize and prod, if not shame enough Americans to be ever vigilant not to let a Chicago communist-raised, communist-educated, communist-nurtured subhuman mongrel like the acorn community organizer gangster Barack Hussein Obama to weasel his way into the top office of authority in the United States of America."
Nugent was interviewed in 2012 by the Secret Service after he said at the National Rifle Association's annual meeting that he would be either "dead or in jail by this time next year" if Obama is still in office.
The agency later cleared Nugent, saying the issue had been resolved and they were not anticipating further action.
But Abbott's campaign is brushing off Nugent's history of contentious comments.But this is obviously a story and a controversy being ginned up by the Democrat-controlled state media like CNN. Because Obama himself used the term "mongrel" before.
"The controversy is what he said in the past. We are not endorsing Ted Nugent, he is supporting us," the aide said.
On his Facebook page, Uncle Ted put things in perspective as far as what is really offensive.
Not only that, I find it hypocritical that liberals not only take more offense at what Nugent said instead of Obama's trampling on our Constitution, but their own silence at even worse words and death threats issued toward conservatives, particularly conservative women and minorities.
