Kid Rock’s upcoming Senate run isn’t without challenges along the way. Though the musician is already getting himself ready to run for incumbent Sen. Debbie Stabenow’s seat in 2018, he’ll have to face opponents in the Republican primaries first, including a man by the name of John E. James.

West Point graduate, veteran, businessman and family man, James released an ad announcing his own run for Senate:
