Is Kid Rock running for Senate?

July 12, 2017

We already have a former reality TV star serving as the President of the United States, so how far-fetched is it to suggest a musician could also be making his way to the Senate?

Maybe it’s not so far off, as now Kid Rock (real name Robert Ritchie) has officially launched a website announcing his bid to run for the U.S. Senate in his state of Michigan.


Rock launched, which is pretty bare bones at the moment. It simply has a few banners and pictures of Rock, little bit of text (The “Are You Scared” under Rocks picture is a nice touch) and a store that sells campaign merchandise.

Rock originally announced that he was interested in running back in February, and as of this writing he hasn’t completed any official paper work to file for the U.S. Senate. The only other senator to officially declare is Republican Lena Epstein. Epstein was the co-chair of Donald Trumps Michigan campaign.

Originally, Rock had supported Ben Carson in his nomination, but came to back Donald Trump after Carson was eliminated.

Michigan’s current Sen. Debbie Stabenow, a Democrat, has held office since 2000 and won both of her reelection bids by double-digit margins, so it’s going to be an uphill battle for the American Cowboy.

“I think he would be awesome. I wouldn’t be surprised if there was a movement for him to run, but to my knowledge he has not been asked,” says GOP Press Michigan officer Sarah Anderson to Fox News.
