Robert James Ritchie, known to the world as Kid Rock, has a response to the Democrats shaking in their boots after making his announcement to run for the U.S. Senate in Michigan.
Ritchie intends to run against incumbent Senator Debbie Stabenow (D-MI), and he has this to say: “I concede she is better at playing politics than I am so I’ll keep doing what I do best, which is being a voice for tax paying, hardworking AMERICANS and letting politicians like her know that We the People are sick and tired of their bulls***!” (via The Detroit News)
His announcement to run for the U.S. Senate has unnerved Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) to the extent that she is rushing out to frantically raise campaign funds for her own campaign as well as for Senator Debbie Stabenow, whose term in Kid Rock’s home state of Michigan ends in 2018.
Warren expressed concerns earlier that Kid Rock might just be the next Donald Trump in an email she sent out to potential donors. “I know a lot of people are thinking: this is some sort of joke, right?” Warren’s email read. “Well, maybe this is all a joke — but we all thought Donald Trump was joking when he rode down the escalator at Trump Tower and announced his campaign, too…And sure, maybe this is just a marketing gimmick for a new album or tour — but we all thought Donald Trump was just promoting his reality TV show, too.”
The promotional email contained the links to hers and Senator Stabenow’s campaign contribution pages.
The uproar began with a website called Kid Rock for Senate, which fans and followers questioned, asking if it was real. But Rock confirmed his intentions with a tweet that read: “I have had a ton of emails and texts asking me if this website is real… The answer is an absolute YES.”
But state Representative Geoff Diehl (R-MA), who intends to run against Warren, seems to think she is running a publicity stunt of her own. “She uses any and every issue, whether it’s a celebrity Republican or it’s Hillary Clinton, to try to scare her support base into giving her more money so that she can reach that main goal I believe of running for president … not of focusing on the concerns of her constituents in Massachusetts,” Diehl stated.
Whether his intentions are real or not, one thing is certain, Democrats are a little nervous. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer sent out the following email, according to CNN:
What are you so nervous about, Democrats?
