They call him cowboy, but they may have to start calling him Mr. Senator.
Conservative rock star Kid Rock, Robert Ritchie, was mentioned as the Michigan Republican Party convention, held Feb 10 – 11, as a possible contender to take on Democrat Sen. Debbie Stabenow next year. the Detroit Free Press reported.
“He would draw a lot of attention for sure,” Dennis Pittman, of the Oakland County Republicans, said. “Get a lot of earned media for sure like Trump did. He could definitely shake things up quite a bit and I think he has a great chance of winning.”

The idea isn’t as far-fetched as some might think. Celebrities have a long history of acquiring political office.
Rock is no stranger to making political statements.
In 2012, he backed the presidential campaign of Gov. Mitt Romney and he tacitly endorsed President Donald trump in the 2016 election.
He has drawn the ire of liberals for defending the Confederate battle flag and for selling T-shirts the refer to liberal states as Dumbf**kistan.
He even told Al Sharpton and other detractors to kiss his a*s after they attacked him for defending the Confederate battle flag.
Rock has not commented on the Senate rumors.
But social media did.
The thought that Kid Rock will possibly be in the senate hypes me up #bawitdaba
