A delighted Mitt Romney introduced Kid Rock at his campaign rally last night, as the Detroit rocker played his song "Born Free," which has become the campaign's anthem.

Romney explained to the crowd that he met with Kid Rock to talk about Michigan.

"He said, 'Mitt, if you're elected president, will you help me help the state of Michigan?' And I said I would. He said, 'If you're elected president, will you help me help the city of Detroit?' I said I would," Romney stated, “And then I turned to him, and I said, ‘By the way, given the fact that I’m willing to do those things, will you come here and perform a concert tonight for my friends?’ and he said he would.”

According to the Associated Press, Romney visited with Kid Rock at his house for about an hour.
