Rock star turned political junky, Kid Rock (aka Robert James Ritchie) has ended the rumors in Michigan this week by confirming the speculation that he might run for U.S. Senate.
Like Ted Nugent, he’s been increasingly vocal in recent years about politics as usual in Washington, and now he’s had enough of the ‘bullsh*t’ from Democrat Sen. Debbie Stabenow.
Trump’s election last year has given rise to a number of potential celebrity bids for office ranging from the other ‘Rock’, Dwayne Johnson, to Opra to Gwyneth Paltrow and others.
Ritchie, of course, is among the few celebrities who aren’t insane, leftists. This will be fun to watch.
Here’s more from Breitbart…
Musician Kid Rock appeared to confirm his run for the U.S. Senate in his home state of Michigan Thursday with a fiery Facebook message in which he blasted the media for “once again” being “wrong” about his potential candidacy and took a shot at incumbent Sen. Debbie Stabenow.
Rock had hinted at a potential run for Senate on Wednesday with the launch of a campaign website, kidrockforsenate.com. But some media outlets speculated that the website was a publicity stunt, as the only links on the site were to an online merchandise store with Rock-branded apparel run by Warner Bros. Records.
“Once again the press is wrong,” Rock wrote in Facebook post Thursday. “First of all, I’ve got 15 days from my announcement to file paperwork with the FEC! Second, I’m not signed to Warner Bros!!! – which simple fact-checking would have revealed.”
The 46-year-old rocker confirmed his bid to run for Senate and said he would release new music during his campaign, similar to how politicians release books during their own campaigns.
