Musician Kid Rock announced Wednesday that he has formed a nonprofit to promote voter registration ahead of his possible bid for a Senate run in 2018.

Robert James Ritchie, who goes by Kid Rock, posted on his personal website that he will make another announcement in six weeks or so, but in the meantime his goal is to get more people registered.

“We have over a year left until an actual election, so my first order of business is to get people engaged and registered to vote while continuing to put out my ideas on ways to help working class people in Michigan and America all while still calling out these jackass lawyers who call themselves politicians,” Mr. Ritchie wrote.

He said he’ll use his shows to help promote his cause.

“During this time while exploring my candidacy for US Senate, I am creating a 501(c)(4) - a non-profit organization for the promotion of voter registration. Not only can I raise money for this critical cause, but I can help get people registered to vote at my shows,” Mr. Ritchie wrote.

The musician is exploring a possible run for Senate his home state of Michigan challenging incumbent Democrat Debbie Stabenow who is up for re-election in 2018.
