Kid Rock’s Name Mentioned As Possible Republican Senate Candidate
Kid Rock’s name has been mentioned as a possible Republican Senate candidate to take on Michigan Democratic Sen. Debbie Stabenow next year.
Roll Call reported Tuesday that the 46-year-old rocker’s name — whose real name is Robert James Ritchie — came up during the Michigan Republican party convention over the weekend. However, no official name has yet to be announced as a contender for the seat. (RELATED: Kid Rock To Play Concert At RNC Convention Launch After Walsh Drops Out)
The rocker backed Mitt Romney in 2012 and put his support behind Donald Trump once he became the Republican presidential nominee in 2016. (RELATED: Kid Rock Was Asked, ‘Who Are Your Heroes?’ — You’re Going To Love His Answer)
In July, the singer stepped in to kick-off the Republican National Convention in Cleveland after Joe Walsh from The Eagles backed out of performing at the show because he found out it was for “conservatives.”
After the election, Kid Rock launched a line of pro-Trump merchandise on his site that peeved some on the left. The items included T-shirts with logos on them that read, “Make America Badass Again,” “God, Guns and Trump,” and many others.
Due to overwhelming demand, we decided to go ahead and actually make this & other current event merch: https://t.co/7sQgqk0SLk pic.twitter.com/0PukiHvHCb
