John Mellencamp isn't the only rocker who's the focus of a grass-roots election campaign -- there's a push to get Ted Nugent elected governor of his native Michigan. 45-thousand people have signed the "Ted Nugent for Michigan Governor" Facebook page.
But Nugent, who toyed with the idea of running for the office in 2005, says he has nothing to do with it. He tells the Detroit News, "Concerned Michigan residents are so at a loss they can't find anybody in the state to vote for -- that's how bad it is. When it gets right down to it, I would make a great governor because I would bring in my machete and hack away at the waste and the cronyism."
Nugent only spends part of his time in Michigan, having moved to Texas in 2003
