One morning – three conventions! That was part of Clay Aiken’s schedule on Saturday!
The Democratic Party of Union County held its Annual Convention on Saturday from 10 am to 1 pm. The event was held at the historic Old Armory Community Center in Monroe. Many of the local candidate for the 2014 election joined Clay to address the audience. The following tweet produced some information about this event.
@clayaiken spent the morning at the Union County Democratic Convention where I was elected to the 9th Congressional District as a delegate!!
Clay’s second convention was the Lee County Democratic Convention in Sanford. It was held at the Lee County Courthouse.
Clay had the opportunity to speak to the assembly.
Finally, Clay spoke with the Harnett County Democrats.
Unfortunately, I was not able to find out anything more about this meeting.
If I get more information, I will add to to this article.
I thought it might be interesting to see some of the important up-coming dates for the election.
Apr. 11 – Deadline to register to vote in primary
Apr. 24 – May 3 – Early voting period for primary

I sure hope that Clay has convinced lots of people to register to vote. It’s one of the most important steps in the entire year!
Since it is Sunday, I hope that Clay can have a quiet morning and enjoy a few minutes of relaxation.
If and when we get more news about Clay and the campaign, I will post it here.
