Kid Rock Will Run For Senate

On Tuesday, prospective Michigan Senate candidate Kid Rock got a glowing endorsement from one of the original 17 GOP presidential candidates in 2016: former New York Governor George Pataki.

Kid Rock Senate Run Gets Nod of Support From Republican Super PAC

Pataki, who served three terms as the governor of New York, dropped out of the 2016 presidential race early; he signed off on December 29, 2015.

As Politico has reported, the Senate Leadership Fund, a super PAC formed during the 2016 election backed by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s backing, has also determined they’d like Kid Rock to run. The group’s president, Steven Law, told C-SPAN on Friday, “We’d be actually very interested in his candidacy. I certainly wouldn’t count him out … The truth of the matter is that he’s done a lot in his home state philanthropically. He’s a pretty smart guy. He thinks about policy and he’s a shrewd businessman. If you’re watching, Kid, we hope you run.”

Law referenced a recent RealClearPolitics poll in which Kid Rock trailed incumbent Debbie Stabenow by eight points. He declared, “It’s not a bad place to start.”

Former presidential candidate Herman Cain vehemently disagrees with those supporting a Kid Rock run, asserting such a campaign would be “just a joke.” Senator Elizabeth Warren countered, “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. And sure, maybe this is just a marketing gimmick for a new album or tour — but we all thought Donald Trump was just promoting his reality TV show, too.”
