While it is not known if Kid Rock will campaign to run on the Republican ticket, many are weighing in about their hopes that he will go up against incumbent Democrat Debbie Stabenow in 2018. The Michigan Senator acknowledged the rumor on Wednesday, saying on Twitter, "I know we both share a love of music".

Taking to Twitter earlier, the musician shared an image of a political sign bearing his name and addressed rumours of the site's legitimacy.

Rock, whose real name is Robert James Ritchie, dropped the bombshell Wednesday afternoon when he announced: "I have had a ton of emails and texts asking me if this website is real ..." Ritchie tweeted. "The answer is an absolute YES".

Kid Rock said he'll have a "major announcement" soon and the website's store features merchandise ranging from a $4.99 bumper sticker to a $24.99 T-shirt. It has slogans such as "In Rock We Trust", "I'll Rock The Party" and "You've Never Met a Politician Quite Like Me". "Can't see you getting into politics".

So Kid Rock probably isn't running for Senate today. The idea of his potential candidacy for Senate was first reported back in February of 2017.

In April, Kid Rock joined fellow rocker and conservative activist Ted Nugent and former Alaska Governor and onetime Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin for a White House visit and dinner with Trump.

Musician Kid Rock announced Wednesday he would run for senate in MI in 2018.

He also already has campaign merchandise for sale. He told the Guardian in 2015 he was inclined towards the middle on certain issues despite being a Republican.

When I was a boy I was told that anybody could become president. "As an ordained minister, I don't look forward to marrying gay people, but I'm not opposed to it".

Rock has been vocal is his support for the President, telling Rolling Stone that he's "digging Trump" and that we should "Let the business guy run the country like a business".
