Kid Rock for senate?

It's a possibility.

In the tweet, Kid Rock said he has been fielding emails and texts asking if the website is real.

He said the answer is "an absolute yes."

The 46-year-old followed up with a tweet saying "I will have a major announcement in the near future."

The website logo reads "Kid Rock '18 for U.S. Senate."

Page visitors can also purchase swag, including stickers, shirts, lawn signs and caps that read "Kid Rock for U.S. Senate."

The link to purchase apparel redirects visitors to the musician's Warner Brothers records website.

As of Wednesday afternoon, there appears to be no federal election committee records filed under "Kid Rock" or his legal name Robert James Ritchie or Robert Ritchie.

Kid Rock is a Republican.

Senator Debbie Stabenow is up for re-election in 2018. It appears Kid Rock is preparing to challenge Stabenow for her seat.

"I know we both share a love of music. I concede he's better at playing guitar and I'll keep doing what I do best: fighting for Michigan," Stabenow said on Twitter.

Lena Epstein, a candidate for the U.S. Senate, released the following statement:

Hey Kid: Welcome 2 the party! I hope we have the opportunity to campaign across the state together and talk about all the reasons we need to take the fight directly to Debbie Stabenow, defund sanctuary cities, and implement pro-growth America First economic policies. Let's work all summer long! The more attention we can bring to the need to defeat Debbie Stabenow, the better off we will be in November. 

We'll continue to follow this story as it develops.
