Kid Rock announces he’s running Senate in Michigan


Donald Trump may have broken the dam. If a reality star and businessman can become President of the United States, then why can’t a rock and country singer become a Senator?

Robert Richie (aka Kid Rock) hinted on Wednesday that he is running for the U.S. Senate in 2018 in his home state of Michigan.

Richie’s been a long-time Republican and describes himself as having libertarian leanings. In the past, he campaigned for Mitt Romney, Ben Carson, and President Trump.

The rock star may be able to find some real support in Michigan given his loyalty to the state. He currently serves as a deputy reservist for the Oakley, Michigan police force, and has worked extensively for military families in the state as well as nationwide.

He is also a part owner of a microbrewery in the state, which produces Badass Beer served at different local events and employs dozens of people.

If he does in fact run, money shouldn’t be much of a problem. He has an estimated net worth of $80 million, according to Business Insider.

Currently, two other Republicans are in the race to face Sen. Debbie Stabenow in 2018.
