Former NYS Governor Backs Kid Rock For Senate Run
So yeah, celebrities are running for office a lot. Its a new hip thing, except a former governor of New York actually is backing Kid Rock.
Now I am all for a celebrity running if they actually have what it takes to do the job. As is the public being we have a celebrity as president. Controversial as it may be. Does Kid Rock have what it takes to run for Senate in his home state of Michigan in 2018? Well George Pataki tends to think so, a tweet many thought was a joke was actually 100% genuine.

Now Pataki has a good reason to backing someone like Kid Rock and celebrities as a whole. Basically he has said according to NYUP that trust in the government in its entirety is at an all time low and candidates like Kid Rock are who the public would deem to be trustworthy. He was even quoted in saying that it worked out well for Ronald Reagan. I myself will even throw out a name like Arnold Schwarzenegger.
It should be noted that Kid Rock has actually not declared any bid to run for office at this moment.
