Potential Senate Candidate Kid Rock Declares,

The musician said he's angry at Detroit organizations he has supported in the past for not defending him, and challenged the National Action Network to make up the losses.

Steve Neavling of Motor City Muckraker reports that some Kid Rock fans have posted threats on social media against the protesters. Kid Rock will open Little Caesars Arena on September 12th with a show and will return for 5 additional shows on September 13, 15, and 16, 19 and 20.

Kid Rock for U.S. Senate merchandise will be on sale at Little Caesars Arena during Tuesday night's performance.

Oil mixed, Brent rises as Irma casts shadow over Harvey recovery
Irma barreled into Caribbean islands overnight with wind speeds up to 185 miles per hour (295 kph) and was heading for Florida. It knocked out nearly a quarter of the country's huge refinery industry, cutting demand for crude oil refining lifeblood.

While he continues to play the "Will He?" or "Won't He" dance with the great people of the state of MI over the upcoming race for U.S. Senate, Kid Rock remains pretty busy handling the duties of his day job, performing in arenas across the country.

Kid Rock -who first gained commercial success in the late 1990s with rap rock music but has been more associated with country music in recent years - has not been bashful about his political leanings.

Tonight's appearance in Detroit is expected to be met by protests from The National Action Network's Detroit chapter, a civil rights group. One counter-demonstrator held a Confederate flag.

"We won't reward bad behavior", Kid Rock's publicist, Kirt Webster, told the newspaper. "They are trying to use the old confederate flag (issue), stir the pot, when we all know none of this would be going on if I were not thinking of running for office". A secretary of state spokesman said staff would have to research whether "Kid Rock" could be used.
