  • Kid Rock: 'F--- no, I'm not running for Senate'

    Kid Rock is ending months of speculation about a possible Senate bid, saying, “F--- no, I’m not running for Senate.” “Are you f---ing kidding me? Who couldn’t figure that out?” the “All Summer Long” singer said on Howard Stern’s SiriusXM radio show on Tuesday. “I’m releasing a new album. I’m going on tour, too. Are you f---ing shitting me?” he asked Stern. The performer, whose real name is Robert Ritchie, had flirted for months with a possible Republican bid against Michigan Sen. Debbie Stabenow, hawking “Kid Rock for U.S. Senate” T-shirts and criticizing the Democrat, saying Americans were “sick and...
  • Stabenow: ‘Kid Rock might actually win the Republican primary’

    Stabenow: ‘Kid Rock might actually win the Republican primary’ By Judy Kurtz - 09/28/17 04:25 PM EDT Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.) is fundraising once again off a potential matchup against Kid Rock, saying if the musician makes a run for her Senate seat, he “might actually win the Republican primary.” A Thursday email to supporters from Stabenow’s 2018 reelection campaign touts a poll that “shows Debbie beating Kid Rock in a hypothetical head to head — but it also shows something else: A full one-third of Michigan voters are ready to back him should he decide to get in the...
  • It’s Happening (Maybe): Romney Reportedly Set To Run For Senate In Utah — If Orrin Hatch Retires

    Hotair ^ | 09/12/2017 | AllahPundit
    Alternate headline: “Orrin Hatch must retire.” And there’s a fair chance that he will! He’s 83 and said in March that he’d be more inclined to step down if he could get a “really outstanding person” to run for his seat. When asked if he had anyone in mind, he said “Mitt Romney would be perfect.” That lit the fuse on RomneyWatch 2018, leading to reports that Romney was thinking about it and had even spoken to Mitch McConnell about running. But then in May the speculation seemed to fizzle: Hatch himself claimed that Romney told him he wouldn’t...

    American ^ | September 10, 2017 | Matthew Franks
    Before analyzing Kid Rock as a cultural phenomenon, we first have to spend some time with the Frankfurt School, a group of European academics who rose to prominence in the mid 20th century. No, seriously. The word "dialectic" gets thrown around enough to warrant some clarification. Now used primarily as a pseudo-intellectual shibboleth to refer to social changes, the philosophical roots of the modern concept of dialectic are surprisingly important. Dialectic describes Hegel's idea that as society moves toward its perfected state, it must resolve internal contradictions – issues that cause social unrest and then lead to social change. According...

    AV Club ^ | 9.1.17 | Todd Spangler
    Michigan resident Robert Ritchie—known to fans as that Cicero of shitty country-rap, Kid Rock—has fired back at watchdog groups suggesting that his near-constant comments about running for office might actually make him subject to the U.S.A.’s electioneering laws. Faced with accusations that selling signs with slogans like “Kid Rock For Senate ’18" makes him a candidate—and thus beholden to the Federal Election Campaign Act, which requires candidates to track and report donations and campaign contributions—Ritchie fired back with the same sort of measured response that the Michigan electorate can probably hope to see from him if they get blazed out...

    Kid Rock teased a potential U.S. Senate run on Thursday, tweeting that '[t]he 2018 Political Revolution is nearing.' The musician, who was born Robert Ritchie and lives in suburban Detroit, has already said on social media that a website touting his Senate candidacy against Democrat Debbie Stabenow is real. He said in July that he would make a 'major announcement in the near future.' Ritchie wrote on a Kid Rock for US Senate website that '[t]he democrats are "shattin’ in their pantaloons" right now…and rightfully so!' 'We will be scheduling a press conference in the next 6 weeks or so...

  • ‘Kid Rock’ May Be Ineligible for Michigan Ballot (Note :The name that is)

    Elections bureau would decide whether Robert Ritchie can use stage name Robert Ritchie may end up challenging Democratic Sen. Debbie Stabenow in Michigan next year, but his stage name, Kid Rock, may not be allowed to appear on the ballot. Kid Rock is a household name to Americans under the age of 50, and voters might be attracted to vote for him, as a middle finger to the political establishment. But it’s not immediately clear whether his famous stage name would appear on the ballot or if he’d be required to run under his less-known given name.

Debbie Stabenow, D-Mich., in 2018. Steven Law, president of the Senate Leadership Fund, made the revelation when asked about the rock star, who has teased a potential run on social media over the past month. He also told Kid Rock that "we hope you run" for the seat.

    When my name was thrown out there for US Senate I decided to launch I was beyond overwhelmed with the response I received from community leaders, D.C. pundits, and blue-collar folks that are just simply tired of the extreme left and right bullshit. As part of the excitement surrounding this possible campaign, I decided to take a hard look to see if there was real support for me as a candidate and my message or if it was just because it was a fresh new news story. The one thing I've seen over and over is that although people...

    A friendly on-air conversation between Jake Tapper and Senator Al Franken was coming to an and yesterday on CNN’s State of the Union show, when Tapper appeared to catch Franken off guard with a question on the potential for a Kid Rock/Debbie Stabenow contest. As a celebrity who used his national fame and home state ties to gain a Senate seat, Franken was in no position to denounce celebrity candidates. I found it highly entertaining to watch his face reveal how worried he actually is as his mind formed the words to glide through the answer without incident.
  • Kid Rock ahead in hypothetical matchup with Debbie Stabenow

    On July 12th, 2017 Robert Ritchie, aka Kid Rock, confirmed his intention to run for the United States Senate seat in Michigan. His announcement sent a shock through the media and many dismissed it as a cheap publicity stunt. While Ritchie has yet to file his official documentation to seek the office, he stated his intentions on Twitter and pushed back at his critics, saying “the press is wrong.” Debbie Stabenow is the incumbent Democratic Michigan senator who is scheduled to defend her seat in 2018. Ritchie intends to run as a Republican who would likely have to defeat a...

    The news that Southern-fried rock/rapper Kid Rock will be running for some timeserving Dem hack’s Senate seat in Michigan should make every normal American smile and spill a 40 to his homies. The future Senator Rock deserves your eager support for two critical reasons: First, it will drive the liberals insane. Second, it will make George Will and the rest of Team Fredocon soil themselves.“Kid Rock? Oh, well I never!” You simpering sissies.
