Hey it’s Scott Alan,
First it was the Donald getting into politics, and now country rap-rocker Kid Rock says he plans to run for the U.S. Senate in 2018.
He made the announcement yesterday (July 12) according to Billboard. Rock, whose real name is Robert Ritchie, intends to run as a Republican in his home state of Michigan. He has launched a campaign website at kidrockforsenate.com.
After the campaign website went live with the slogan “Are you scared?” featured on the homepage, Rock wrote on Twitter, “I have had a ton of emails and texts asking me if this website is real…The answer is an absolute YES.”
The whole thing could be a ruse, since clicking to buy merchandise on the site directs you to a Warner Bros. Records page — suggesting that the whole thing could be to promote a new album.
