Kid Rock Teases Running For US Senate

USA Today reports that Kid Rock is featured in a Kid Rock For Senate website, featuring him in a chair next to a stuffed deer, with the words “Are you scared?” When asked if it was legitimate, he wrote on Twitter:

If he runs, Kid Rock (real name Robert Ritchie) would be the Republican candidate, competing against US Senator Debbie Stabenow, a Democrat from Michigan.

Kid Rock was mentioned back in February when Livingston County Tea Party activist Wes Nakagiri was elected to the Republicans’ central committee and told the Detroit Free Press that Rock was a viable candidate.

She said: “(Kid Rock) has name I.D., is an out-of-the-box idea, and would kind of get rid of that stodgy Republican image. I’ll bet you he would generate as much excitement as Trump did.

Rock performed at the 2016 Republican National Convention in Cleveland and supported Donald Trump. In April, he met with Trump along with Ted Nugent and Sarah Palin in the White House and Oval Office.
