Former New York Governor Backs Kid Rock’s Senate Run
Tuesday, former Republican New York Governor George Pataki announced his endorsement for Kid Rock’s potential Michigan Senate bid.
Robert Ritchie, AKA Kid Rock, continues to his exploration of a potential 2018 Senate run in Michigan. Just last week a very prominent Mitch McConnell-linked super PAC encouraged Ritchie’s run.
Pataki tweeted Tuesday an endorsement that seems to solidify the Republican establishment’s backing of Kid Rock:
“Kid Rock is exactly the kind of candidate the GOP needs right now. #KidRockForSenate”

A shock poll showed that Ritchie has a huge lead in the Republican primary and is also extremely competitive in relation to the Democrat incumbent Debbie Stabenow with their numbers showing the pair to be neck-and-neck.
Ritchie announced in a recent statement, “The democrats are ‘shattin’ in their pantaloons right now . . . and right fully so,” per the Daily Caller.
