Clay Aiken – A Nationally Known Personality

There is a new article about Clay Aiken and his fundraising trip to Atlanta, Georgia.  It is short, but very nice. – “American Idol” alum turned Congressional candidate Clay Aiken in Atlanta

By Jennifer Brett

“American Idol” alum Clay Aiken is now running for office in North Carolina, but raising money in Georgia.

The crooner turned Congressional hopeful was in Atlanta this week on a fundraising trip.

The Raleigh News & Observer reported that he officially declared his candidacy last month, ” injecting a nationally known personality into what has been a quiet Democratic primary to produce a challenger to U.S. Rep. Renee Ellmers.”

Aiken dined at Pricci Tuesday night following a reception at Ansley Golf Club. He posed for a photo at Pricci with executive Chef Piero Premoli, and his campaign posted this selfie.

Ellmers’ Twitter feed also featured a bit of celebrity news this week, although it was posted with sorrow. “I was saddened to hear of the passing of the First Lady of NASCAR, Lynda Petty,” Ellmers posted on Tuesday, after learning that the wife of NASCAR giant Richard Petty had died at age 72.”My prayers are with the Petty family.”

Why not visit the site and give it hits.  That’s a great way to support the site and the writer.

  1. Love seeing this new picture. It is so much fun to keep up with Clay and all he is doing. I am so proud of the way he is running this campaign.

  2. Yes, I totally agree that Clay's campaign is being run in a civilized and intelligent manner. At some point, I expect an array of distorted information will be aimed at him, but I believe the general public and college students are exhausted with such lies and half-truths. Certainly, all the character assassination in the world will go right over Clay's head. He knows who he is and so do many, many others1
