Kid Rock doesn’t want his name on a ballot anytime soon.
The multi-genre singer, whose real name is Robert Ritchie, said on Howard Stern’s SiriusXM show that he was not running for Senate, despite the hype growing around the idea.
“F— no, I’m not running for Senate. Are you kidding me?” Kid Rock said, according to the Detroit Free Press on Tuesday. “Who couldn’t figure that out? I’m releasing a new album. I’m going on tour too.”
His new album, “Sweet Southern Sugar,” is set to release on Nov. 3.
Kid Rock also said that people in his circle that were “in on the joke” were beginning to take the Senate talks seriously.
He said he would tell them that “no, we’re not doing it, but let’s roll with it for a while.”
Speculation that Kid Rock would run for Senate began circulating over the summer when, among other things, he launched a website, KidRockforSenate.com and posted statements that he was mulling over a possible senate bid.
Senate Leadership Fund, a super PAC backed by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, in August expressed support for the musician to take on Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.) in 2018.
