It looks like another celebrity is making a run at becoming a bigwig in Washington—except this time it’s not for the presidency.
The tweet was quickly followed up with:
Stay tuned, I will have a major announcement in the near future - Kid Rock— Kid Rock (@KidRock) July 12, 2017
The website, which still needs to be completed with the usual “about” page and a list of how Ritchie feels about particular policies, only has a scant few things up as of Wednesday evening.
There is the obligatory “subscribe for email updates,” an option to buy “Kid Rock For U.S. Senate” T-shirts, hats and stickers, and a square that scrolls through what appears to be several slogan ideas for the campaign including:
- Born Free
- Party To The People
- Welcome To The Party
- I’ll Rock The Party
- Get In The Senate And Try To Help Someone
- You Never Met A Politician Quite Like Me
- In Rock We Trust
- Pimp Of The Nation
The tagline on the site reads: “ARE YOU SCARED?”
We’ll let that speak for itself.
In case you were wondering, Ritchie would represent his home state of Michigan.
Update 6:21pm CT, July 13: Ritchie said in a Facebook statement on Thursday that he’s apparently not planning to run, though he did not close the door on a possible bid. Read his full statement below:
