Kid Rock has always been outspoken about his political beliefs, and now it looks like he may be ready to put his money where his mouth is.
A new website KidRockforSenate.com is up and running with the banner “Kid Rock ’18 for U.S. Senate” stretched out over a photo of Kid looking somewhat official. He’s sitting in front of a window with a drawn shade and the words “Made in Detroit” written on it. That would seem to hint that he’d be running to represent his home state of Michigan, rather than Tennessee, where he also has a home.
Underneath the photo are the words, “Are you scared?”
A box on the site features a rolling loop of several slogans for the apparent campaign, including “You never met a politician quite like me,” “I’ll rock the party” and “Get in the Senate and try to help someone.”
For now, the site includes a hat, t-shirt and bumper sticker on sale with the “Kid Rock for U.S. Senate” logo emblazoned on them, but clicking on his “campaign” merchandise link routes users to a page that appears to be managed by his record label home, Warner Bros. Records.
So, is all of this for real?
Kid promises he’ll have a major announcement “in the near future.” He posted this message on his social media accounts July 12, “I have had a ton of emails and texts asking me if this website is real … kidrockforsenate.com The answer is an absolute YES. Stay tuned.”
Kid Rock is a Republican and has been a supporter of Donald Trump’s presidency.
He’s already picked up one endorsement from a celebrity pal.
We’ll keep you posted!
