Every politician comes with their share of pie-in-the-sky campaign promises — lower taxes, better health care, safer streets — but how many potential candidates can offer a slogan like “Bawitdaba da bang da bang diggy diggy diggy?” Some voters in Michigan are hoping for that exact possibility. According to Billboard, at last weekend’s Michigan Republican Party convention, Kid Rock’s name was floated to run as a 2018 Senate candidate to unseat current Democratic senator Debbie Stabenow. Rock, who campaigned for President Trump and sells hats that say “Make America Badass Again,” was born in Romeo, Michigan. He considers himself a Libertarian, though on many occasion he has also identified as a “cowboy, baby.” There is no word yet on whether Mr. Rock will be joining the race at this juncture.
