Kid Rock Tweets Out First Campaign Message
When Donald Trump put Michigan in the GOP column in last November’s election, Democrats sat up and took notice. It was the first time that the state had gone red since 1988, and it signaled a new capacity for the GOP to reach working class voters.
Robert James Ritchie — the Detroit musician known as Kid Rock — hopes to capture some of that magic in the race for the Michigan Senate seat held by Democrat Debbie Stabenow. On Monday, he made it official that he was running with a tweet directing supporters to his new website, kidrockforsenate.com.
“I believe if you work your butt off and pay taxes, you should be able to easily understand and navigate the laws, tax codes, health care and anything else the government puts in place that affects us all,” the message read.
