What an amazing 4 days it has been for Clay Aiken and his fans! It has been non-stop articles, interviews, TV, Radio, polls, pictures, and live visit throughout the North Carolina’s 2nd Congressional District. After posting on Saturday afternoon, there are only a few things to post now.
The Harnett Dispatch – DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATES ANNOUNCE THEIR CANDIDACY
American Idol Star Clay Aiken announced earlier last week that he would be seeking the democratic nomination to challenge Rep. Renee Ellmers. Mr. Aiken made an appearance today at the Harnett County event and said that he is running because Rep. Ellmers has lost touch with the district and that we the people of the 2nd district need representation that is connected to the district that she represents. He said that he is running to make Rep. Renee Ellmers respond to the people of the district because she has not responded to the district since taking office.
Former NC Commerce secretary and Businessman Keith Crisco is also vying for the chance to challenge Ellmers in the 2014 general election. Mr. Crisco stated that his experience in creating jobs in North Carolina both in the private and government sector is what he’s all about and he will reach across the isle to make North Carolina a place where people can thrive. Mr. Crisco also stated that he is the only candidate that can beat Ellmers based on experience and leadership.
