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.
Never miss a local story.
“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.
