America's most patriotic rocker is going to "Rock the Senate."
On Wednesday, Kid Rock (birth name Robert Ritchie) announced to the world that he's going to run for the U.S. Senate in 2018 to represent his home state, Michigan. His goal: take down three-term Democratic Sen. Debbie Stabenow.
Rock's official announcement followed the appearance of the website KidRockForSenate.com. He made it official in a tweet on Wednesday:
"I have had a ton of emails and texts asking me if this website is real… https://t.co/RRVgISDFeq The answer is an absolute YES," he wrote.
He followed that message up by teasing a big "announcement," writing, "I will have a major announcement in the near future."
The musician's website has been floating some slogans for the soon-to-be Senate candidate, including "I'll Rock the Party," "You Never Met a Politician Quite Like Me," "Born Free," "Party to the People," "In Rock We Trust," and the obvious winner, "Pimp of the Nation."
Rock has become famous for his unapologetically patriotic performances. He's also unapologetically Republican. He performed at the Republican National Conventions in both 2016 and 2012. Though he initially backed Ben Carson during the 2016 Republican primaries, he wholeheartedly endorsed Trump when he took command of the race.
He's already made a headline-grabbing appearance at the White House with a couple of famous friends, who took some time to celebrate Trump's big win and mock his vanquished foe:
