Senator Elizabeth Warren, otherwise known as “Pocahontas”, is already extremely nervous about Kid Rock’s chances when Michigan goes to the polls in the fall of 2018 to vote for their next Senator.
As we reported before, Kid Rock made his 2018 Senate bid official this week, and it’s throwing career politicians for a loop!
According to the Boston Herald, Warren sent her base an email titled “Kid Rock (R-MI)” in which she warned her base that this may not be a joke. She then turned around and begged her audience for money in the same email.
Here’s more from the Boston Herald:
““I know a lot of people are thinking: this is some sort of joke, right?” Warren wrote in an email blast.
“Well,” she said, “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 TV show, too,” she added.
The Bay State senior senator then links to a fundraising page where donations are split between Michigan Democratic U.S. Sen. Debbie Stabenow and Warren’s own 2018 re-election campaign.
A Warren campaign spokeswoman did not return repeated inquiries about how much the fundraising appeal has hauled in or the strategy behind it.
But if the effort succeeds, other Democrats are likely to also cash in on a Rock candidacy — remote as it may be — to fill their own campaign coffers, said Larry Sabato, a political science professor at the University of Virginia.
“Political elites and activists who actually give money to campaigns keep up with all this stuff,” he said.”
Sorry Pocahontas, Kid Rock IS serious and he very well may take you career politicians down!
