Since Donald Trump brought in a big W for the Grand Old Party in 2016, many others have been considering their chances at running for office. One of those people is Kid Rock.
Many people seem somewhat upset that he may be running because they feel as if he is unconventional. Guess what? So was Donald Trump! Or should I say PRESIDENT Donald Trump.
Rock, who is looking to represent Michigan in the Senate, went red in November during the presidential election. This is significant because the state hasn’t gone red since 1988. This is a revolutionary time!
Rock, also known as Robert James Ritchie, may appeal to those who are not convinced yet, with his first campaign message that he sent out on Twitter. The Detroit musician said:
“I believe if you work your butt off and pay taxes, you should be able to easily understand and navigate the laws, tax codes, health care and anything else the government puts in place that affects us all.”

Conservative Tribune reports:
As for now, Kid Rock’s campaign website only has a picture of Mr. Rock in a rocking chair (very meta!) along with merchandise and slogans derived from his lyrics: “Get in the Senate and try to help someone” and “You never met a politician quite like me” were just two of them. (Another one, “Pimp of the nation,” is bound to get some negative attention — but then, much like President Trump, Rock seems inured to controversy.)
In a statement on his website last week, Kid Rock dismissed those calling his interest in running a hoax and, while not confirming that he was going to run, went after Sen. Stabenow in his trademark style.
“Senator Stabenow and I do share a love of music, although probably not the same kind,” he wrote. “I concede she is better at playing politics than I am so I’ll keep doing what I do best, which is being a voice for tax paying, hardworking AMERICANS and letting politicians like her know that We the People are sick and tired of their bulls***!”
We already saw a win between Trump and Hillary Pantsuit Clinton. I think Kid Rock has a huge chance here! What do you think?
