Kid Rock on his Senate run

Responding to Kid Rock's new website Wednesday, Stabenow said, "I know we both share a love of music".

Even then, the girls, beards, and ammo of the "Po-Dunk" video could just make up Rock's platform, but in a post on his campaign site, the musician wrote that "like politicians write books during their campaigns, I'm planning on putting out music during mine and it all starts tonight at midnight". Follow-up statements to his original confirmation that the Kid Rock for Senate website is real didn't really clarify much. Debbie Stabenow referred to Ritchie's intended candidacy in a Wednesday fundraising email, saying, "We don't know if this is real or a publicity stunt, but after Donald Trump's surprising win a year ago, we need to act fast".

The other song Kid Rock released on Friday is "Greatest Show on Earth".

'Most people would have taken that meeting'
Trump Jr . - in his interview with Hannity - said that he is willing to testify under oath about the meeting. Putin had said it seemed to him Trump had "agreed" but added "it's better to ask him about his attitude".

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.

While Kid Rock's hard living rock-and-roll lifestyle, which includes a sex tape and assault charges, would traditionally be considered a liability for a political candidate, the success of President Trump's campaign past year may encourage more unconventional candidates to run for office.

Born Robert Ritchie, the ex-husband of Pamela Anderson has previously endorsed Republican candidates Mitt Romney and Donald Trump in their presidential campaigns.

Her campaign tried to capitalize on the spectacle by blasting out a fundraising e-mail. I was pretty sure it was a publicity stunt created to put the spotlight on a forthcoming release. It then asks for a $5 online donation. Warren acknowledged that fact, but noted that Democrats should take the idea of a Kid Rock campaign seriously. The raucous song has that killer gritty low end sound and boasts the chorus, "Welcome the greatest / Love the way you hate us / Welcome to the greatest show on earth".
