How do we know this Robert J. Ritchie is actually Kid Rock? Despite the fact that the mark references Kid Rock, there are a couple other indicators: (1) the address listed in the application (a Tequesta, Florida P.O. box) appears to coincide with Kid Rock's charity and is the same address listed in Kid Rock's AMERICAN BADASS BEER COMPANY and KID ROCK trademark registrations and (2) the attorney listed in this application is the same attorney listed in many other Kid Rock trademark applications and registrations, including the registration for KID ROCK.
Is Kid Rock actually running for Senate or is this just a publicity stunt? Notably, this trademark application does not include "political campaign services," which is often included in trademark applications for political campaigns, such as the application for Evan McMullin's logo I blogged about last year. Therefore, unless and until Kid Rock further clarifies the goods and services listed in this application, submits specimens showing use of this trademark, and/or files a new application that covers political campaign services, we may have to take his word that he is not actually running for Senate in 2018. Bummer?
