Kid Rock kicks off with simple Senate platform: ‘I believe if you work your butt off and pay your taxes …’

It sure looks like Kid Rock‘s run for a Senate seat is the real deal and not the “joke” that some thought.

Tweeting out a message on Monday, the rock icon appeared to lay out a platform for his Senate bid, which he previewed in a post last week.

“I Believe if you work your butt off and pay your taxes, you should be able to easily understand and navigate the laws, tax codes, health care and anything else the government puts in place that affects us all,” Rock announced in the tweet.

In a tweet last week, Rock, whose real name is Robert James Ritchie, responded to questions about whether his webiste was real, saying the “answer is an absolute YES.”

While his message raised eyebrows and had many wondering if it was a hoax or publicity stunt, the conservative rocker responded with a Facebook post in which he addressed Michigan Democratic U.S. Sen. Debbie Stabenow.

“I concede she is better at playing politics than I am so I’ll keep doing what I do best, which is being a voice for tax paying, hardworking AMERICANS and letting politicians like her know that We the People are sick and tired of their bullsh**!” he wrote.

Rock certainly got the attention of many Democrats, including Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who questioned the musician’s intentions and wondered if it was “just a marketing gimmick” in a fundraising email she sent out to Democrats last week.

With his latest tweet and an official website page captioned “Are you scared?” it appears the rocker is serious about coming after Stabenow’s seat.

He still has a few days to file his paperwork with the Federal Election Commission but his latest tweet and what is shaping up to be a real campaign had many on Twitter already celebrating.
