Is Kid Rock Running For Senate?

Does the name Robert James Ritchie sound like Michigan's next Republican Senator? If your answer is yes, you're not alone. Ritchie, aka Kid Rock, whose name has been floated around for the the — hopefully — upcoming 2018 Michigan senate battle, has launched a campaign website KidRockForSenate.com.
The American Bad A** singer's website is full of merchandise for the upcoming campaign — Ritchie, however, has not officially announced his candidacy. The website features a variety of slogans, such as "Pimp of the nation", "I'll rock the party" and "In rock we trust." And visitors can purchase hats, shirts, stickers, and yard signs.
Rock Tweeted about the website yesterday saying, "I have had a ton of emails and texts asking me if this website is real… http://kidrockforsenate.com The answer is an absolute YES," adding moments later, "Stay tuned, I will have a major announcement in the near future."
Those who head to the merchandise part of the Bawitdaba singer's website will notice that it's part of the Warner Bros. Records website, so there is a good chance that this is all part of a marketing ploy — we're keeping our fingers crossed. But if Kanye West mounts a bid for presidency in 2020 and Rock is in the Capitol Building, it will sure make for some entertaining news. Who smells an emmy?
