Illinois Wants Nugent To Consider Politics

Eccentric rock star TED NUGENT is a favourite to represent Illinois as a political heavyweight after the state's leading Republican was forced to sit out of the Senate race when he was caught up in a sex scandal.

Former STAR TREK star JERI RYAN's ex-husband JACK was accused of forcing his wife to go to strip clubs with him and forcing her to perform for him there, as part of a messy custody battle between the couple.

As a result, Ryan bowed out of the race to become a Republican candidate in Illinois, and now locals want Nugent to step in.

Cook County Republican Chairman GARY SKOIEN (corr) insists he'd love to see Nugent represent the state in Washington DC.

He says, "He grew up in Arlington Heights. He went to St Viator High School. He has more connection to Illinois than HILLARY CLINTON had to New York, and he's been a very articulate spokesperson on constitutional issues. He would be a very interesting candidate."
