    Is Detroit native Kid Rock thinking about stepping off stage and getting into politics?

    FOX's Michelle Pollino reports:

    Kid Rock heads to Washington, that's a possibility as the singers name has been thrown out out as a potential Republican for a Senate seat up for grabs next year.

    Roll Call reporting Rock, whose real name is Bob Ritchie, was brought up at a Michigan Republican party convention last weekend. Rock has been a vocal supporter of Republican candidates, but when pressed he's described his politics as "more Libertarian."

    Last year, Rock got behind Donald Trump's winning presidential bid and performed in 2012 at a Mitt Romney rally during his run for president. Recently he even began selling Donald Trump merchandise in his online store.
