    Kid Rock Running For US Senate

    Washington (CNN)Musician Kid Rock on Wednesday has become the latest "Rock" celebrity to express interest in jumping into politics.

    "I have had a ton of emails and texts asking me if this website is real... http://kidrockforsenate.com The answer is an absolute YES," he tweeted Wednesday afternoon.

    In a follow-up tweet, the 46-year-old Michigan native added: "I will have a major announcement in the near future."
    As of Wednesday afternoon, there appears to be no Federal Election Committee records filed under "Kid Rock" or his legal name Robert James Ritchie or Robert Ritchie.

    Judith Ingram, a spokeswoman for the FEC, confirmed to CNN that the FEC has not seen a filing under Kid Rock yet, but suggested checking back Thursday morning. She also said a filing like this "would first go to the Secretary of the Senate, which is the entry point for Senate filings." A call to the Secretary of Senate's office was not immediately returned.

    The website Kid Rock referred to in his tweet features a photo of the musician -- sporting a hat, aviator sunglasses and a leather jacket -- next to a stuffed moose, sitting on a blue chair (decorated with stars). The website logo reads "Kid Rock '18 For US Senate." Page visitors can also purchase swag, including stickers, shirts, lawn signs and caps that read "Kid Rock for US Senate." The link to purchase apparel redirects visitors to the musician's Warner Bros. Records website.

    Wonder how he will answer questions about his older brother who molested their younger sister.

    Bob comes from a very wealthy family but for years portrayed himself as a street kid. After realizing rap/metal trend was done he became a down home redneck country boy. Next trend to jump on I guess is politics.

    I remember seeing something on TV that he was taking over 50 pills a day just to stay alive. Everyone thought that he was a little kid, but he was born the same year as I was, 1974.

    Ever see a Kid Rock concert? Guy is a fantastic entertainer - knows how to work the crowd.

    According to Donald Trump himself - did not realize is was so complicated.

    Weak opponent--he would have a chance. What an awesome rally he would have lololol like 60k packed in somewhere. Even Kid R not as much of "lowlife" as people he would be up against

    Joe C, that was it. Damn, so long ago. I remember it being only a matter of time before he was gonna die growing up. I'd like to say he had a nice life, but all the health issues had to suck. Kid Rock was always there for him, though.

    Jesse Ventura did it, as Governor even, so why not Kid Rock? Fck it. The lady he would go against is a Dumbacrat anyway. Especially dumb. Stabenow is just another lifer trying to get paid. She's been sleeping for 15 years doing nothing for Michigan. Now she's awake, and trying to raise money. Someone must have shaken her out of her pill, and booze stupor.

    I hope Tom Brady runs in 2024 after Trump's term is over.

    I'd vote for him.

    Could've been more concise. Something like, 'I don't like Kid Rock,' or something to that effect.

    Who cares what his brother did. What does that have to do with Kid Rock?

    FYI, I don't really care for Kid Rock.

    Yes, he's very popular. But... I think for the most part... these celebrities who are extremely popular are indecisive in running... because let's say if they did lose... huge blow to their ego. Why would you risk it with your high reputation? Nobody likes losing.

    Kid Rock is Republican but has nothing against gay marriage and is not pro life. No chance. He will be the worst R candidate of all time.

    Anybody here from Michigan, knows what his chances are?

    Minnesota keeps re-electing a very bad comedian.
