So it seems the news here is that Kid Rock plans to leave his house at some point this year or the next, when he may campaign or just sing, which the public might find frightening. The email links to a website which splits money raised between Warren, who is also running for re-election in 2018, and Michigan's incumbent Democratic senator and would-be Kid Rock opponent Debbie Stabenow.
Of course, word of Kid Rock's Senate intentions were met with skepticism, especially when somebody figured out that clicking on the merchandise on his KidRockForSenate.com site redirected to his page on Warner Bros.
The post continued, "Senator Stabenow and I do share a love of music, although probably not the same kind".
Rock says that he does not have plans for "an album or anything else that has been the usual norm in the music business OR politics", but later on Thursday night, he released two new songs: "Greatest Show on Earth" and "Po-Dunk". But he asserted on his website that him running for Senate is "not a hoax" and promised to be "a voice for tax paying, hard working AMERICANS and letting politicians like her know that We the People are sick and exhausted of their bullshit!"
Other people on Twitter, where Kid Rock became a trending topic, reacted with much less tact. Republicans are hoping it's the start of a reversal of fortune in a state that typically sends Democrats to the Senate.More news: Republican to CNN: 'White House is Paralyzed'
The famous rocker ― who also goes by "Detroit cowboy", "American badass" or simply "the Kid" ― hinted at a bid for a Senate seat in MI by tweeting to his fans that the website KidRockforSenate.com is real.
Her campaign tried to capitalize on the spectacle by blasting out a fundraising e-mail.
This isn't the first time people on the internet have floated rumors of Kid Rock running for the Senate. Earlier this year, the singer filed a trademark for "Kid Rock's Made in Detroit Bar & Grill". I was pretty sure it was a publicity stunt created to put the spotlight on a forthcoming release. "Well, maybe this is all a joke - but we all thought Donald Trump was joking when he rode down the escalator at Trump Tower and announced his campaign, too".
