Michigan Republicans have their eyes set on Debbie Stabenow's Senate seat, which will be up for re-election in 2018, according to reports out of the state GOP convention in Lansing over the weekend.

Now, Kid Rock's name is being thrown around as a possible GOP candidate to try and unseat Stabenow, who has been in the Senate since 2000.

The Detroit Free Press first mentioned his name being brought up at the state convention.

"He would draw a lot of attention for sure," Dennis Pittman with Oakland County Republicans said. "Get a lot of earned media for sure like Trump did. He could definitely shake things up quite a bit and I think he has a great chance of winning."

Kid Rock, who's real name is Robert Ritchie, has not said anything about the suggested Senate run, but he does use his voice to stand up for political beliefs, actively supporting Mitt Romney in the 2012 Presidential race.
