Kid Rock is reportedly being considered as a potential candidate for Senate.
The 46-year-old musician, real name ROBERT RITCHIE, was apparently discussed during a Michigan Republican Party convention last weekend (11-12Feb17), according to Rollcall.com.
The website reports the rocker was thrown into the mix as one of the Republican contenders for Michigan Democrat Debbie Stabenow's Senate seat next year (18), but no official decisions have been made as yet.
While Rock's name is likely to come as a surprise to the majority, he has always been very vocal about his political beliefs. Despite considering himself as Republican, there are some issues he disagrees with the party on, as he previously explained to The Guardian newspaper.
"I am definitely a Republican on fiscal issues and the military, but I lean to the middle on social issues. I am no fan of abortion, but it's not up to a man to tell a woman what to do. As an ordained minister I don't look forward to marrying gay people, but I'm not opposed to it," he said.
Born Free singer Rock has been a massive supporter of several Republican candidates, including Mitt Romney during his bid for the U.S. presidency back in 2012.
He is also a supporter of divisive new U.S. President Donald Trump, and began stocking Trump merchandise in his online store prior to the November (16) election. Among the items are T-shirts bearing the slogan "God, Guns & Trump", and hats stating, "Make America Bada*s Again".
The right to bear arms is something Rock feels very passionately about, and he owns several guns himself, including a .22 rifle and a semi-automatic with a silencer.
"I'm always buying more guns. I have everything from a Civil War cannon to an MP5 machine gun and old police guns. If someone invades your house, yeah, you can shoot them. I don't think crazy people should have guns," he added.
