Kid Rock confirms interest in 2018 Senate run

July 13, 2017

Musician Kid Rock is strongly hinting he’s running for the US Senate in Michigan. The rap-rocker recently launched a website promoting himself for a future run in politics.

The 46-year-old musician, whose real name is Robert James Ritchie, tweeted out on Wednesday that his campaign website, is, in fact, for real.

“I have had a ton of emails and texts asking me if this website is real… the answer is an absolute YES!”

The Detroit native followed that up with another tweet: “I will have a major announcement in the near future.”  

There have been no Federal Election Commission records filed for anyone under his real name and a spokeswoman for the FEC, Judith Ingram, has said that the FEC has not received any filed papers under the name “Kid Rock,” according to CNN. She also mentioned that a filing of this nature “would first go to the Secretary of the Senate, which is the entry point for Senate filings,” CNN reported.

The logo of the website says “Kid Rock ‘18 For US Senate.” Stickers, shirts, caps and lawn signs are all items that potential supporters have access to purchasing on the page.

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 Michigan. Nugent has been very sincere about a political career.

“I’m a hellraiser,” Nugent said. He continued, “I’m what the founding fathers wanted all Americans to be… And it’s all about the constitution, the Bill of Rights, the Ten Commandments, the Golden Rule, being the best that you can be, earning your own way,” he told Fox News.

Also, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson was featured in a headline that read ‘Dwayne Johnson For President!’ in GQ magazine. This made many speculate whether he, too, would run for office. Official announcements have not been made by either of these public figures.
