Sources: Clay Aiken prepping congressional bid

RALEIGH, N.C. — Pop singer Clay Aiken is assembling a political team for a run at the Democratic nomination in the 2nd Congressional District, sources told WRAL News on Thursday.

Aiken, a Raleigh native, is expected to make an official announcement next month, sources said.

Former state Commerce Secretary Keith Crisco and Durham attorney Houston Barnes have already announced plans to seek the Democratic nomination in the 2nd District, which is now held by Republican Congresswoman Renee Ellmers.

Aiken was the runner-up on “American Idol” in 2003 and later put out six albums and appeared on Broadway and on reality television. His most noted foray into the political arena came two years ago when he spoke out against North Carolina’s constitutional amendment outlawing same-sex marriage.

  1. It’s really a shame people can’t give this man credit for anything. All anyone

    needs to do is listen to him and they will see he is a highly intelligent and knowledgeable and well rounded person. You can be sure, IF this is something he might be planning to do,

    you can be sure he hasn’t left any stone unturned. A fresh face with new ideas

    and solutions is exactly what’s needed.

  2. Good luck to Clay. I do not live in NC, but if I did. I would vote for him. We need a person with younger ideas in our government. I wish him the best.

  3. clay i wish you luck i also dont live in nc but if i did id vote for ya clay we do indeed need a amazing person with younger idias in the goverment i wish clay the best

  4. I wonder how many members of "The CLAY NATION"will have to relocate to Raleigh to ensure Clay has the votes to get the position he's going for? I have no doubts we could do it.
