Kid Rock is positioning himself for a Senate run and I couldn’t be more pleased.
The singer, actor, and entrepreneur who was born Robert Ritchie is threatening to run for senate as a Republican in Michigan. And I think it’s amazing. He works with Operation Homefront, performs overseas for the military, is a hunter, a gun rights advocate, a reserve police officer, and an ordained minister. That’s a pretty Republican pedigree if you ask me.
And he just might win. He hasn't even declared an official campaign and yet polling has him 4 points ahead of the incumbent Democrat. “Kid Rock For Senate” shirts have sold out online and he just started a voter registration initiative at his concerts.
But that hasn’t stopped the Swamp, on both sides of the aisle, from disregarding Kid Rock and saying he is not a serious political force. And, amazingly, they’re using all the same reasons they used to attack Trump: He has no experience. He doesn’t talk like a politician. It’s all a publicity stunt. He has a troubled, liberal past.
Watch my video to see why I like Kid Rock, why I think he is the extension of the middle America momentum that swept Trump into office and why I think born again conservatives like Kid Rock should be at the front of the movement.
Now, if Kid Rock plans to be a politician, I have no doubt he will disappoint me at some point. They all do. It’s what they do best.
But while the Liberals look at rough around the edges conservatives as though they are sewer rats and deplorables, it’s for us conservatives to find ways to communicate to those people, to advocate for them and to think that they have value.
And that’s one of the reasons I like Kid Rock. He figured out how to do that already- way back in the 90’s.
You don't even have to like his music to like that fact that everything Kid Rock does is a big FU to the establishment and a shout out the forgotten man.
That's how Trump won. It's what the media wants us to believe doesn't work. It's how, if he runs, Kid Rock will become the next Republican Senator for Michigan.
