Senator Kid Rock? Musician Says Campaign Website Is 'Legit'

Posted July 14, 2017

Ritchie is not registered on the Federal Election Commission website, however, nor does the organization claiming copyright for the website, "Kid Rock for US Senate 2018", appear in OpenSecrets.org's database of political action committees.

Other celebrities and musicians of note who have flirted with the idea of a political run are Ted Nugent, who is also considering a Senate bid in MI.

Taking to Twitter earlier, the musician shared an image of a political sign bearing his name and addressed rumours of the site's legitimacy.

Kid Rock, who was born Robert Ritchie, said Wednesday that a website hinting at his campaign - http://www.kidrockforsenate.com - is legit. 'The answer is an absolute YES'.

This afternoon, "rapper", scratcher, and country singer Kid Rock tweeted that recently launched website Kid Rock For Senate is the real deal. In a follow-up tweet, the 46-year-old MI native added: "I will have a major announcement in the near future". Considering the amount of celebrities that have made their entry into politics, there's a good chance this isn't a joke, but we really, really hope it is.

Wes Nakagiri, a Michigan Tea Party activist, also told the Detroit Free Press in February the Trump candidacy could be "a template" for a Kid Rock candidacy.

So what are the masses thinking today about Kid Rock seriously putting his hat in the ring for U.S. Senate?

Mauger added it's also unusual that Kid Rock did not include a campaign donation section on his website, especially considering the attention his social media posts have gotten.

Case in point, musician Kid Rock hinted at a possible Senate run in MI on Wednesday. Stabenow has been in the Senate since 2000. He previously supported Republican candidate Mitt Romney in the 2012 presidential election. He told the Guardian in 2015 he was inclined towards the middle on certain issues despite being a Republican. Rock, along with fellow musician Ted Nugent and former Republican vice-presidential nominee Sarah Palin, visited the White House in April.
