Democrats already taking a Kid Rock Senate run 'seriously'

Democrats already taking a Kid Rock Senate run 'seriously'

While it's unclear exactly where exactly Kid Rock's political loyalties lay, his large fanbase in Trump country and personal friendship with the 45th president suggest he would run a populist campaign closely aligned to Trump's political movement.

Add to that an official-looking quote about taxes, health care "and anything else the government puts in place that affects us all" and it's hard to avoid the impression that Rock is running. Kid Rock, whose real name is Robert Ritchie, will run in his home state of MI. "It's not a hoax, it's a strategy and marketing 101!" he wrote on his website.

The Grammy award nominee has denied that this is a public relations stunt. "Like politicians write books during their campaigns, I'm planning on putting out music during mine", the statement read.

The Bay State senior senator then links to a fundraising page where donations are split between Michigan Democratic U.S. Sen. In the brief message, Rock - real name Robert James Ritchie - blasted the media for "once again" being "wrong" about his potential candidacy, and took a not-so-subtle swipe at incumbent Democratic Michigan Sen.

Jordan Peele, Chelsea Peretti welcome first child together
Posting a photo of herself in a gray T-shirt and long cardigan-baby bump on full display-Peretti wrote, "beyonce schmonce". On Monday, it was reported that Jordan Peele and Chelsea Peretti have welcomed their first child into the world.

In a fundraising email to supporters, obtained by the Boston Herald, Warren wrote: "I know a lot of people are thinking: this is some sort of joke, right? 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", she said. The senator, who plays guitar, tweeted an article about Kid Rock's bid with the words, "I know we both share a love of music. 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 hard-working Americans".

Kid Rock inducts rock band Cheap Trick at the 31st annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn on April 8, 2016.
