Before Ronald Reagan was the Governor of California or President of the United States he was an actor and-- a Democrat. US Senator Al Franken was a writer for "Saturday Night Live." Sean Duffy, current US Representative for Wisconsin's 7th district was on MTV's "Real World."
A few other entertainers turned into politicians, too, but the list is short-- Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jesse Ventura, Sonny Bono, Fred Thompson and, of course, President Donald Trump. Kid Rock is looking to add his name to the short list by running for the Senate from Michigan in 2018. He's also said he plans to release music during his campaign. Will he write his own campaign jingles or stick to his current catalog? As a cast member of "The Hills" once said, "truth and time tell all."
