Elizabeth Warren Concerned About Kid Rock's Potential Senate Run

Kid Rock New Record Deal

If the thought of Kid Rock occupying MI senator Debbie Stabenow's office terrifies you, here's some reassuring news from the eagle-eyed people at Crain's Detroit Business: Robert Ritchie, as the rap-rocker is actually known, hasn't filed any FEC paperwork yet for his self-proclaimed 2018 Senate run, but by sheer happenstance he has applied to trademark a restaurant called Kid Rock's Made in Detroit Bar & Grill. After originally shooting for a 2016 release, Rock continued working on the project - at one point even scrapping much of the existing material and starting from scratch, according to sources close to the musician.

An excerpt from Kid's website reads, "Once again the press is wrong". Records. Rock claims that he has up to 15 days from the day that he announced his candidacy to file with the FEC. "Second, I'm not signed to Warner Bros! - which simple fact-checking would have revealed", he wrote. Media skepticism about his political plans prompted a fiery response Thursday from the 46-year-old Romeo native, as he hyped his upcoming music and declared it to be "strategy and marketing 101!"

With his name hot in the headlines amid political talk, Kid Rock got down to music business early Friday morning, releasing a pair of music videos and announcing a 2018 concert tour.

Senator Stabenow and I do share a love of music, although probably not the same kind.

He ended by saying, "I am the captain now", a quote from the film "Captain Phillips".

Rock released videos after midnight for bluesy guitar based songs "Greatest Show on Earth" and "Po-Dunk", featuring a pregnant woman in bikini bottoms smoking on the front lawn. Stay tuned to see what else the "Kid Rock for Senate" campaign generates.

Kid Rock took to Twitter on Wednesday to tease his senatorial bid, sharing the website kidrockforsenate.com and tweeting, "I will have a major announcement in the near future".

Kid Rock's Senate run has quickly gone from "Will he or won't he?" to "He definitely will".

Looks like Kid Rock is taking a page or two from Donald Trump's playbook.

And seeing how well that combination worked out for the current president, a Senate win for Kid Rock would likely only accelerate the blurring of politics and entertainment.
