Full title: "BREAKING: Kid Rock Officially Announces His 2018 Run For Senate"
Kid Rock sent out a tweet to his followers on Monday with an image attached saying, "I Believe if you work your butt off and pay your taxes, you should be able to easily understand and navigate the laws, tax codes, health care and anything else the government puts in place that affects us all."

TGP reported that Kid Rock would potentially be running for Michigan Senate back in February.
Elizabeth Warren seems nervous over Kid Rock's Senate run as she was already attacking the singer before he officially announced his run just a few days ago when she said the following:
"I know a lot of people are thinking: this is some sort of joke, right?" Warren wrote in an email blast with the subject line "Senator Kid Rock (R-MI)."
"Well," she said, "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.
"And sure, maybe this is just a marketing gimmick for a new album or tour -- but we all thought Donald Trump was just promoting his reality TV show, too," she added.
On July 12th, the rocker teased his Twitter followers about his potential plans to run for Senate in Michigan.
I have had a ton of emails and texts asking me if this website is real... https://t.co/RRVgISDFeq The answer is an absolute YES. pic.twitter.com/uYCUg6mjW1

Many believed the 'announcement' was fake, prompting Kid Rock to post the following note on his website:
Once again the press is wrong. 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. I have recently worked out a unique deal with BMG, Broken Bow, CAA and Live Nation to release music ON MY TERMS. Like politicians write books during their campaigns, I'm planning on putting out music during mine and IT ALL STARTS TONIGHT AT MIDNIGHT. It's not a hoax, it's a strategy and marketing 101! No plans for an album or anything else that has been the usual norm in the music business OR politics.....and....
Senator Stabenow and I do share a love of music, although probably not the same kind. I concede she is better at playing politics than I am so I'll keep doing what I do best, which is being a voice for tax paying, hardworking AMERICANS and letting politicians like her know that We the People are sick and tired of their bullshit.

Does he understand they have a dress code and decorum inside the stately, hallowed halls of the senate? Me thinks who doesn’t give a $#!+
I guess Fauxahauntus forgot about senator Al Franken. Probablt because he’s incompatible with her whole narrative.
Good for him.
Likewise, I hope he requires them to refer to him as “Senator Rock” when they do rollcalls. Kinda like using the specified pronoun ;-)
Anyone who has ever listened to Debbie Stabenow knows ‘the kid’ will be 10 times the senator she is.
Michigan deserves better than Sen. StabMeNow
Pro-guns and hunting
I don’t have a problem with this.
I’ll take a plainspoken novice with his heart (mostly) in the right place over most Republican incumbents and definitely all Democrat incumbents. More power to him.
I dont have a problem with this.
Pro legalized drugs
Pro, or at least netural, gay marriage.
Have a problem with any of those?
I can see him, Ted Cruz, and Mike Lee hanging out together talking about the constitution.
Maybe he can join that Singing Senators group.....LOL
He would be a damn sight better than most if not all dimoKKKRATS and some Republicans.
We don’t have anyone running right now who will pass the full conservative purity test.
im from Michigan...hes got my vote.
Why not. Maybe a legal name change is in order?
Pro-guns and hunting
Unfortunately The Kid is also pro-choice. But sometimes you gotta take what you can get.
>>We dont have anyone running right now who will pass the full conservative purity test.<<
Ronald Reagan could not pass the FR conservative purity test.
The perfect is the enemy of the good.
You have two running who would probably come closer to passing than Kid Rock would.
