Musician Kid Rock appeared to confirm his run for the U.S. Senate in his home state of Michigan Thursday with a fiery Facebook message in which he blasted the media for “once again” being “wrong” about his potential candidacy and took a shot at incumbent Sen. Debbie Stabenow.
Rock had hinted at a potential run for Senate on Wednesday with the launch of a campaign website, kidrockforsenate.com. But some media outlets speculated that the website was a publicity stunt, as the only links on the site were to an online merchandise store with Rock-branded apparel run by Warner Bros. Records.
“Once again the press is wrong,” Rock wrote in a Facebook post Thursday. “First of all, I’ve got 15 days from my announcement to file paperwork with the FEC! Second, I’m not signed to Warner Bros!!! – which simple fact-checking would have revealed.”
