Republicans in MI have been reportedly excited to have Rock run on the GOP ticket in 2018 to challenge incumbent Democrat Debbie Stabenow, the senior US.

Musician Kid Rock, an outspoken supporter of President Donald Trump, may have his own political aspirations. Ritchie tweeted. "The answer is an absolute YES".

The musician's website has a photo of Rock with the words "Are you scared?" underneath. There's also a link to buy T-shirts, hats, and bumper stickers emblazoned with "Kid Rock for U.S. Senate". Also on the site is a changing sign that contains a number of potential political slogans, including "I'll rock the party", and the hilarious "Get in the Senate and try to help someone".

Kid Rock's website is missing several components key to staying in line with federal campaign finance laws, said Craig Mauger, executive director of the Michigan Campaign Finance Network.

As you can see in the picture above, Kid Rock has the same color scheme as the Oval Office going on behind him, blue and gold. Although the USA has a long tradition of joke candidates achieving major success.

Kid Rock has said he is launching a run for the US Senate.

Bob "Kid Rock" Ritchie seems to be dipping his toe into politics.

Kid Rock, known for lighthearted songs like "All Summer Long" and 'First Kiss, ' launched a website on Wednesday in order to effectively promote his campaign. Sarah Anderson, deputy chief of staff for the Michigan Republican Party, told CNN in an email: "We have not had any conversations with Kid Rock so I can not speak to the validity of this".

If Kid Rock does decide to opt into the race as a Republican, he'd be facing at least two candidates in the Republican primary. Despite considering himself a staunch Republican, there are some issues he disagrees with the party on, as he previously explained to The Guardian newspaper.

When I was a boy I was told that anybody could become president.

A Senate race in MI against Stabenow - who has won three terms including beating an incumbent Republican in 2000 - wouldn't be easy and would require any candidate trying to replace her to spend a lot of time courting voters at town halls, rallies and debates, as well as developing a media strategy.
