Kid Rock, whose transparently phony tease that he was running for Senate briefly enthralled his fan base a few months back, has apparently found his candidate. The musician, whose offstage name is Robert Ritchie, is backing John James in the Republican primary, and will appear at a rally for the candidate Tuesday in Novi, the Detroit News reports.
The event goes off at 7 pm. at the Suburban Collection, with doors opening at 6. There'll be music, giveaways, trivia and "a shooting range and gun safety course with cork rifles," because of course there will be. No word on whether Rock/Ritchie will perform, but he will be on stage with James and former Navy SEAL Rob O’Neill, who claims to have delivered the head shot that killed Osama bin Laden, and there'll be microphones present, so it's probably a good bet.
Tickets are available at the John James for Senate website.
