Sen. Elizabeth Warren signed on to a fundraising email Friday warning Democrats not to take lightly the prospect of a Michigan Senate run by musician Kid Rock.
“I know a lot of people are thinking: this is some sort of joke, right?” the Massachusetts senator wrote in a fundraising email with the subject line, “Senator Kid Rock (R-MI),” according to the Boston Herald. “Well, maybe this is all a joke — but we all thought Donald Trump was joking when he rode down the escalator at Trump Tower and announced his campaign, too.”
“And sure, maybe this is just a marketing gimmick for a new album or tour — but we all thought Donald Trump was just promoting his reality show, too,” she added.
The senator’s email comes after Rock — real name Robert James Ritchie — posted a link to a new campaign website, kidrockforsenate.com, on his Twitter account Wednesday.
