Kid Rock continues to flirt with a Michigan Senate bid, highlighting a conservative poll showing he would lead in a hypothetical match-up against incumbent Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D).

The “All Summer Long” singer, whose real name is Robert Ritchie, tweeted to his nearly 450,000 followers on Monday:

The tweet linked to an article right-leaning news site The Gateway Pundit, which featured a Delphi Analytica poll. Ritchie led Stabenow 54 percent to 46 percent among those surveyed.

Ritchie, 46, teased earlier this month that he would have a “major announcement in the near future,” while promoting a Senate campaign website.

“He would be a horrible senator,” Rep. Brendan Boyle (D-Pa.) said in an interview last week.
