As if politics couldn’t get any weirder these days …
Kid Rock’s name has been mentioned as a potential contender for Michigan Democrat Debbie Stabenow’s U.S. Senate seat next year, according to Roll Call.
Apparently his name was spoken at a Michigan Republican Party gathering last weekend.
Fox News checked out the report with a Michigan Republican Party rep who said that, as far as she knows, no one has reached out to Rock.
“I think he would be awesome,” Michigan GOP press officer Sarah Anderson told Fox. “I wouldn’t be surprised if there was a movement for him to run, but to my knowledge he has not been asked.”
The rocker, who a few years back said he leaned libertarian, has supported Republican candidates in recent years — Mitt Romney, Ben Carson and Donald Trump.
His real name is Robert Ritchie.
Common sense demands his name on the ballot be “KIIIIIIIIID Rock!”
Cue more snark.
