Since no candidate so far has used “So Hott” as their campaign theme song, it looks like Kid Rock has cast his vote.

After Mitt Romney paid a personal visit to Kid Rock’s home, the two native Michiganders appeared on stage together at a campaign rally in Royal Oak, Mich.

“I’m happy to introduce a son of Detroit,” the Republican contender said to his audience. “A friend, a guy who makes great music, who introduces me by DVD everywhere I go: Kid Rock!”
