Kid Rock is running for US Senate. That's right. After muchspeculation, and a White House visitback in April alongside Ted Nugentand Sarah Palin, Kid Rock has confirmed via Twitter that he is "absolutely" serious about becoming a Senator for Michigan.
Rock, whose birth name isRobert James Ritchie, first posteda link to his campaign website. He then promised "a major announcement in the near future." At this point, Kid Rock's site only offers merchandise and a way to sign up for email updates.
If Rock/Ritchie is serious about launching a senatorial campaign, he'll be going up against DemocratDebbie Stabenow, who has held the seat since 2000.
