Kid Rock Announces He's Running For Senate In Michigan

Michigan Republicans were hopeful Rock would run to replace Democrat Debbie Stabenow, seeing as how Trump, a Republican, won the state in the 2016 Presidential election.

Besides potential political aspirations, Kid Rock recently collaborated with Gretchen Wilson on a new duet called "Bad Feeling" off of her recently released Ready to Get Rowdy album.

In case you didn't know, Robert James Ritchie is the birth name for musical artist Kid Rock. Ritchie tweeted. "The answer is an absolute YES".

While the Federal Electoral Commission has not yet received any paperwork, which is required if he wants to raise money for a campaign, he has a merchandise store in which you can buy star-spangled hats, shirts, yard signs and bumper stickers.

The Kid Rock for Senate website was the first hint that Rock s entering politics, but most dismissed it as a stunt until the "All Summer Long" singer took to Twitter to say it's real.

The news came out after people began questioning Rock after a website, KidRockForSenate.com, was discovered by friends and fans alike. He tweeted that a major announcement is coming in the future.

Kid Rock - an outspoken conservative and supporter of President Donald Trump - visited the White House in April 2017 with his pals Ted Nugent and former Alaska governor Sarah Palin. "Look, I tend to vote Republican, but I don't like the hardcore views on either side and I'm not in bed with anybody", he told Rolling Stone in 2013. Even more interesting would be if fellow MI native Eminem ran against him as a Democrat. "I know we both share a love of music", she said in a tweet. "I concede she is better at playing politics than I am so I'll keep doing what I do best, which is being a voice for tax paying, hardworking AMERICANS and letting politicians like her know that We the People are sick and exhausted of their bulls-!"

The idea of Rock running for Senate isn't entirely out of the blue, however: In February, the Republican Party of MI mentioned Rock as a potential candidate during their convention.
