Musician Kid Rock has announced his bid for the U.S. Senate in Michigan.

In a tweet Wednesday, Rock, whose birth name is Robert James Ritchie, wrote that the website “KidRockForSenate.com” was real and to stay tuned for “a major announcement in the near future.”

Republicans in Michigan have reportedly been considering Rock to run on the GOP ticket in 2018 to challenge incumbent Democrat Debbie Stabenow for her seat.

Michigan GOP press officer Sarah Anderson told Fox News in February that she was unaware if Rock would run for office in the state, but that she thinks it “would be awesome” if he did.

Rock, an outspoken conservative, endorsed Mitt Romney for president during his 2012 campaign. He told The Guardian in 2015 that he’s a Republican on certain issues, but leans toward the middle on others.

“I am definitely a Republicanon fiscal issues and the military, but I lean to the middle on social issues. I am no fan of abortion, but it’s not up to a man to tell a woman what to do. As an ordained minister I don’t look forward to marrying gay people, but I’m not opposed to it,” Rock said.

The singer visited President Donald Trump at the White House in April with former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and fellow musician Ted Nugent.

If Kid Rock is serious about running and wins the Senate seat, he would be the first GOP candidate to win that seat since 1998. Incumbent Stabenow has held her seat since 2000.

Can it really be worse? Like, we're pretty sure he doesn't have the resources to commit treason prior to clenching the GOP presidential nomination.

I don't like Stabenow, but Rock would be even worse. I really hope he doesn't run. In this political climate, he actually has a chance. Hopefully old money Republicans are turned off by his brand of celebrity.

Michigan was a lot different 40+ years ago. The whole country was, in fact.

I mean, that right there is about all I can ask of a hardcore Republican, tbh.

Meh. It's not like he could make a state that has Detroit any worse.

I'd rather it be Andrew W K.

While an amazing idea, Andrew W. K. is actually incredibly intelligent. It's not really fair to compare the guy who got famous by yelling BAWITDAHBAH at a midget to an actual piano virtuoso.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joe_C.

Kid Rock said in the interview that he mistakenly thought Joe C. was a child. Calleja asked a mutual acquaintance to tell Rock he wanted to smoke a joint with him, Rock said, after which the pair formally met and Rock learned Calleja was actually a 21-year-old adult. "He's talking and I'm like, would you like a job? He's like, I can't do anything. I'm like, it's not important right now. I was like, you got attitude flying all over this room. I was like, I'll teach you everything you need to know."
