Kid Rock Eyed as Potential GOP Senate Candidate

Kid Rock — wild rock star, Grammy nominee, record producer, actor … and senator?!?

The “Let’s Ride” rocker from Romeo, Michigan, is being eyed as a potential candidate for the GOP seat in his home state, RollCall.com reported Tuesday.

Kid Rock, whose real name is Robert Ritchie, has been proposed as a possible Republican contender for Michigan Democrat Debbie Stabenow’s Senate seat next year.

His name was suggested at the Michigan Republican Party convention last weekend, but no official decisions have been made, according to Roll Call.

The five-time Grammy nominated musician was an outspoken Trump supporter during the presidential campaign, appearing at numerous rallies and selling pro-Trump merchandise.

The “Devil Without a Cause” musician expanded his merchandise line last December after the election to include a number of T-shirts — including one design declaring, “_onald Trump: The ‘D’ is missing because it’s in every hater’s mouth.” Another read: “God Guns & Trump.”

One particularly eye-catching design featured a map of America broken up into red (Republican) and blue (Democratic) states, with a helpful color key noting that red represents “United States of America” and blue represents “Dumbf-kistan.”

If successful in a political campaign, Kid Rock would become the first GOP presidential candidate to win that seat since 1988. Stabenow has held the position since 2000.
