Clay Aiken – “Ellmers Has Been Hitting Aiken Early”

It was fun seeing all the pictures of Clay Aiken at JS Waters School on Tuesday.  Clay looked relaxed and I hope he had a great time chatting with the kids and sharing a bit of Dr. Seuss with the younger students.  I hope you saw the pictures here yesterday.  I was able to post them about noon.  If you missed them, they can be found in the blog titled: Oh, the Places You’ll Go!

 

Have you seen this fun screen cap?  It is nothing important, but, to me, it is exciting to see Clay’s name on this list! Thank you to Displaced NCgirl for the picture

The Voter Update –  Ellmers warns of ‘onslaught of Big Hollywood funding’ in possible race against Aiken

Republican Congresswoman Renee Ellmers sent an email to her supporters on Tuesday, asking them to sign an online petition to show that they will stand with her against  “Liberal Hollywood.”

Ellmers also predicts that she will “be fighting an onslaught of Big Hollywood funding” and says that the “last thing this country needs right now is to send a liberal to Washington who will vote with Nancy Pelosi.”

While she does not refer to Democrat Clay Aiken by name, the show business allusions are a clear jab at the former “American Idol” contestant. Instead, she points to her “liberal Hollywood opponent.”

The email’s multiple mentions of Hollywood come after an earlier missive from the Ellmers campaign claimed that Aiken had “San Francisco values.”

While the two-term incumbent Ellmers has been hitting Aiken early on in the campaign for the Republican-leaning 2nd District, Aiken still must first win a May 6 primary contest against former state commerce secretary Keith Crisco and Toni Morris.

For her part, Ellmers faces a GOP primary against talk radio host Frank Roche, who is attempting to outflank her on the right.

When filing for office last week, Aiken responded to a question about Ellmers’ “San Francisco values” comment.

“Everybody up here knows I’ve been here my entire life, I’ve lived in North Carolina my entire life, my mom won’t let me have anything but North Carolina values,” Aiken said.

I hope today will be another day of news, pictures, and maybe even a video.

I will post the information as soon as it is available.

Did you enjoy the pictures from the school visit yesterday?

  1. Ellmers seems to be more worried about Clay than anyone else. As she should be. I loved how Clay turned a question about Ellmers "San Francisco Values" back to her. He would like to know what she means by that. I haven't heard her comment about it, and I don't suspect she will, until Clay asks her face to face. This will be interesting.

    Clay is all about the platform and what he can do for people. Seems Ellmers isn't on the same page.

    I'll have to go back and see the school pictures now…Thanks Musicfan.

  2. I still have my fingers crossed for Clay, I so wish he would win the Primary in May. Thanks ladies.

  3. Renee Ellmers is only proving herself less intelligent all the time. You would think she would find out more about Clay before making these ridiculous claims. Clay couldn't be any less Hollywood than he is. I would think that the people of North Carolina know better and they might see Ellmers for who she is. If she thinks her ranting against Clay will help her, I think she will be sadly mistaken.

    Go, go, go, go Clay go!

    Thanks Musicfan.

  4. i have my fingers still crossed for clay also i also so wish that he would win the primary in may thank you thank you ladies
