Sen. Debbie Stabenow, D-Mich., could have to face a fan favorite if Robert Ritchie — also known as Kid Rock — decides to campaign as a Republican candidate in 2018.

No final decisions have been made concerning the celebrity’s intent to run, but his name was mentioned as a potential challenger to Stabenow at a Michigan Republican Party convention last weekend. The Michigan native has previously referred to himself as “more Libertarian,” but he has since supported a handful of major Republican candidates, according to Roll Call.

Ritchie has sold more than 26 million records internationally, according to his website. He also produced several hits that made the Billboard charts, among them the song "Picture" with Sheryl Crow, "Only God Knows Why," and "All Summer Long."

Back in the political arena, Ritchie has sold Donald Trump gear on his official online store, peddling T-shirts with phrases like “God, Guns & Trump” written in patriotic colors. He backed former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney in 2012 and Dr. Ben Carson in 2016 before changing to Trump when the billionaire became the party’s official candidate, Roll Call reported.

“Let the business guy run the country like a business,” the songwriter told Rolling Stone last February.

Randy Richardville, a former state senator from Monroe, told the Detroit Free Press on Saturday that he, too, was considering throwing his hat into the 2018 ring. But he noted he "would want to talk to a lot of people" and didn't plan to make a decision until Trump's first 100 days have finished.

Michigan GOP press officer Sarah Anderson told Fox News she had not talked to Ritchie, about his potential candidacy, though she was supportive. “He would be awesome," she said. "I wouldn’t be surprised if there was a movement for him to run, but to my knowledge he has not been asked.”
