‏@jennalyns 28s Love what I’m hearing from @ClayForNC. Just the kind of smart, local passion we need.

catiekingmusic 3 hours ago · Capital Club 16 From camp counselor to congressional candidate, I’m so proud to have known Clay for so long and excited to watch what he’ll accomplish for NC.

I may be biased, but I met @clayaiken tonight, and he’s the real deal. You should be paying attention. #clayfornc


Clay started the day by meeting with the people of HARNETT COUNTY.  The following was found on the Harnett Dispatch


Congressional candidate Clay Aiken was in Harnett County today meeting with local people discussing our district and the problem that we’re facing. The event was held at the Campbell house located on the University campus. The crowd of 40 greeted and talked with Clay about what they want to see happen for the district. Paul Long hosted the event and introduced Clay to the guest. Clay told the crowd that the district needed representation that was available for the public to get in touch with and talk to. He said that although the 2nd congressional district was drawn to be a safe conservative district, history shows that democratic have done very well and referenced former Congressman Etheridge terms and wins as our congressman.

 The older man in the picture is Dr. Bruce Blackmon, a 90-year old Democratic gubernatorial candidate.  According to the fuquay-varinaindependent:

 He believes that in order to see a change in government, both parties must work together to reach a bipartisan solution.
“I just had a feeling that we can all work together as a state, not just one party as opposed to another party, but all of us working together to solve the problems that come up in the state. We are always going to have problems and we need more statesmen and fewer politicians,” Blackmon said.

It sounds like Dr. Blackmon and Clay have a lot of the same ideas. They did have a nice long chat!

To everyone that attended the Clay Aiken event this morning in Harnett County I want thank each of you. We had a nice event and I know an AM is hard on working folks. Clay’s message is spot on and hopefully we can send him to represent all of us. — at Meet Clay Aiken in Harnett County.


Thursday’s mid-day blog covered Clay’s visit and tour of Campbell University.  However, there are a couple more fun pictures from the event.

  1. The college students in North Carolina understand the challenges of acquiring a higher education. Just graduating and finding yourself with the immense debt of a student loan is overwhelming, not to mention securing a job in today‘s economy. These students are smart enough to have figured out our government has come to a screeching halt and zealous enough to do something about it. All they need is a voice, and there truly isn’t another individual who could fit the bill more honestly and efficiently than Clay.

    As for the photos, I like the pictures of Clay speaking with Dr. Blackmon because Clay is wise to pay attention to respected and experienced individuals who can shed light on many topics. My second photo choice is Clay on campus posing with Emily and Ashley because he looks just as young as they do! Absolutely remarkable!!!!

  2. Oh, I almost forgot one other observation regarding Clay’s photos in general. If you focus on his eyes when he is shown speaking seriously with someone, you will often notice great intensity as though he is studying every word, evaluating in depth the personality before him, and adding all he discovers to what I like to consider his “limitless mental data base”. To me, Clay seeks to discover the positives and worth in everyone he meets.

  3. How touching of Clay to kneel at Dr. Blackmon’s feet to chat with him. The young lady seated next to Dr. Blackmon gave her seat to Clay so he could carry on the conversation. I hope that Clay is taking his vitamins and eating regularly to keep up the energy he needs on these busy days.

  4. I can't add anything more to what has been said. The people of NC District 2 would be extremely fortunate to have Clay representing them. He will work for them. Great blog and love all the pictures that are coming in!!! Thanks Musicfan. Great job as always!!

  5. clay aiken is indeed the real deal i have noticedx that clay is indeed realy walks the talkand lots more nc folks are lucky to have clay aiken
