Kid Rock, an outspoken Trump supporter and multi-genre musician, called attention to his Facebook and Twitter accounts today when he posted a message hinting that a run for the U.S. Senate in 2018 is in his future.
“I have had a ton of emails and texts asking me if this website is real… kidrockforsenate.com The answer is an absolute YES. Stay tuned, I will have a major announcement in the near future,” he wrote on Facebook.
"Kid Rock '18 for US Senate," which is registered by Warner Bros., showcases the singer poised upon a star-spangled armchair in an official looking office with royal blue drapery surrounding an ornate, glass encased shelf with a stuffed deer nearby and a “made in Detroit” logo imprinted on a window shade.
The website also features many would-be campaign phrases that include, “Are you scared?” "In Rock We Trust," "Party to the People" and "You Never Met a Politician Quite Like Me."
T-shirts, hats, and bumper stickers with “Kid Rock for U.S. Senate” slogans are also available for purchase.
The singer didn’t make it immediately clear in which state he will run nor the party ticket he will run on. However, we do know who his challenger would be should he decide to run for Senate in Michigan: Democratic incumbent senator, Debbie Stabenow.
While he’s better known for his “All Summer Long” southern rock anthem, the biggest hit of his career, the Michigan-native has made waves for his unabashed patriotism and support for Republican President Donald Trump.
Rock endorsed Mitt Romney in 2012 and Ben Carson in 2016. He later endorsed Donald Trump after he clinched the 2016 Republican nomination for President of the United States.
Original talks of Rock running for Senate began circulating in early February when the Detroit Free Press reported Republicans in the state were after a highly-coveted U.S. Senate seat. Talks of challenging Stabenow in 2018 began at the Michigan Republican Party state convention.
This morning on “Pat & Stu” the guys discussed the rumors and argued that with his level of celebrity, a successful run may not be so far-fetched.
