Michigan Republicans think it would be 'awesome' if Kid Rock ran for Senate


Kid Rock, U.S. Senator?

The Michigan Republican Party considered the singer, whose real name is Robert Ritchie, as a possible candidate to supplant Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) at a convention last weekend, Roll Call reports.

Ritchie is a self-described libertarian who has endorsed several Republican candidates, including Mitt Romney, Ben Carson, and Donald Trump. 

He even sold pro-Trump merch at his online store.

I have not talked to Kid Rock about that. I think he would be awesome. I wouldn't be surprised if there was a movement for him to run.
Sarah Anderson, Michigan GOP press officer

A spokeswoman for the party said no one has reached out to the singer. But that doesn't mean the party would say no.

Ritchie would face an uphill battle. Stabenow has held her seat since 2000. 

He has at least one fan on Twitter.
