Meanwhile, the rocker is launching a 501(c)(4) to promote voter registration…
Kid Rock, the Michigan native with hits “Cowboy,” “All Summer Long,” and “Born Free,” is weighing a potential Senate bid to challenge Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-MI).
At midnight Thursday, the musician, whose real name is Robert Ritchie, posted a new message on his website, KidRockForSenate.com. Ricthie said he’s received overwhelming support from “community leaders, D.C. pundits, and blue-collar folks” to make his plans official.
The statement on Ritchie’s website said he planned to make a formal decision about running against Stabenow, who was first elected to the Senate in 2000, in the next six weeks:
We will be scheduling a press conference in the next 6 weeks or so to address this issue amongst others, and if I decide to throw my hat in the ring for US Senate, believe me… it’s game on mthrfkers.
Ritchie also explained that Democrats are “shattin’ in their pantaloons” at the prospect of his candidacy.
In the meantime, he announced he’s launching a 501(c)(4) group with the aim of increasing voter registration.
During this time while exploring my candidacy for US Senate, I am creating a 501(c)(4) – a non-profit organization for the promotion of voter registration. Not only can I raise money for this critical cause, but I can help get people registered to vote at my shows.
The statement did not specify whether the registration effort would be a national one or focused on his home state of Michigan.
