The musician confirmed the news on Twitter Monday. He posted a link to his official campaign website, along with a short message.
Kid Rock, whose real name is Robert Ritchie, will run in his home state of Michigan. He will be going up against three term incumbent Democrat Debbie Stabenow. She was first elected in 2000 and poked fun at his possible run last week on Twitter.

The singer endorsed President Donald Trump in the last election and Mitt Romney back in 2012.
