(Radio.com) Kid Rock’s Senate run has quickly gone from “will he or won’t he?” to “he definitely will”.
“So, I’ll be honest, we don’t know if this is real, a joke, or a freaky publicity stunt”.
“If Kid Rock DOES become competitive in this race, he’s likely going to have the full support of Donald Trump and his corporate special interest backers behind him”.
“It’s not a hoax”, he wrote in a post on his personal website Thursday evening. But I’ll tell you this: “I don’t find it amusing”. Debbie Stabenow (Mich.) “is better at playing politics”, he plans to “keep doing what I do best, which is being a voice for tax paying, hardworking AMERICANS and letting politicians like [Stabenow] know that We the People are sick and exhausted of their bullshit!” While some find his bid to be “pimp of the nation” humorous, Democrats are not discounting the rocker.
Rock – whose real name is Robert James Ritchie – put out a press release July 13 in response to reports that the political rumors were nothing more than a viral marketing campaign.
Kid Rock is channeling Alexander Hamilton. Debbie Stabenow, who is up for re-election in 2018.
He also responded to incumbent Michigan Sen.

The news was first reported in the Boston Herald.
Whatever the reason for Kid Rock’s purported campaign website, the artist did get a rise out of people on Wednesday.
Stabenow appeared to take the criticism in stride, saying Rock is “better at playing guitar and I’ll keep doing what I do best: fighting for MI”.
