Michigan-born musician Kid Rock is holding off on an official announcement for a U.S. Senate run for the time being, but told his supporters he's still exploring a campaign. The Larry the Cable Guy of butt rock is one of a handful of celebrities to throw their hats into the political ring (seriously, stop encouraging them) in recent months, and like the red-blooded, beer bloated all-American patriot that he is, Rock fully admits that he's in this for the money. I was beyond overwhelmed with the response I received from community leaders, D.C. pundits, and blue-collar folks that are just simply exhausted of the extreme left and right bulls**t.

"As part of the excitement surrounding this possible campaign, I chose to take a hard look to see if there was real support for me as a candidate and my message or if it was just because it was a new news story", he said.

In a statement posted on his website, Kid Rock addressed the rumors that swirled after he confirmed the validity of and spoke about what he has done since then.

When my name was thrown out there for US Senate I chose to launch

During this time while exploring my candidacy for US Senate, I am creating a 501 (c)(4) - a non-profit organization for the promotion of voter registration.

"One thing is for sure though", he writes. Not only can I raise money for this critical cause, but I can help get people registered to vote at my shows.

Sitting U.S. Sen. Debbie Stabenow is up for reelection in 2018, and two Republicans have formally announced their intentions to enter the party's primary - Lena Epstein, former co-chair for President Donald Trump's Michigan campaign, and former Michigan Supreme Court Chief Justice Bob Young. A widely shared Politico piece on Sunday was among many that warned against underestimating his chances in MI, where his quarter-century music career and big shows of loyalty have made him a popular figure. And now Rock has issued a statement, claiming that, yes, the Senate run is a promotional stunt, but that it also might be real.

To run in Michigan's August 7, 2018, primary, Kid Rock would be required to collect 15,000 petition signatures and submit them by April 24.
