Kid Rock Confirms Senate Run

Rock had hinted at a potential run for Senate on Wednesday with the launch of a campaign website, kidrockforsenate.com. But some media outlets speculated that the website was a publicity stunt, as the only links on the site were to an online merchandise store with Rock-branded apparel run by Warner Bros. Records.

 

“Once again the press is wrong,” Rock wrote in Facebook post Thursday. “First of all, I’ve got 15 days from my announcement to file paperwork with the FEC! Second, I’m not signed to Warner Bros!!! – which simple fact-checking would have revealed.”

 

The 46-year-old rocker confirmed his bid to run for Senate and said he would release new music during his campaign, similar to how politicians release books during their own campaigns.

 

Rock — real name Robert James Ritchie — had been floated as a possible Senate candidate in Michigan during the state’s Republican Party convention in February. He has previously described his political views as “more libertarian,” but he supported Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign in 2012, and Donald Trump’s in 2016.
