Kid Rock considers running for U.S. Senate

(WILX) - Kid Rock, also known as Robert Ritchie, is considering running as a Republican. And a recent poll shows he'd win the primary.

Singer Kid Rock performs for service members during the United Service Organization Holiday Tour on Dec. 19, 2008.

The same poll has Senator Debbie Stabenow beating him by eight points in the general election.

She was asked today if he's qualified to serve in the U.S. Senate.

Three republicans have announced their candidacy for Stabenow's Michigan U.S. Senate seat.

They are: businesswoman Lena Epstein; Iraq War veteran John James; and former state Supreme Court Justice Robert Young.
