On Wednesday, The Lee County Democrats published an article about Clay Aiken and his participation in Clay Day.
Work Together – Clay Aiken headlines LCDP rally!
Congressional candidate Clay Aiken spent yesterday in Sanford, meeting city officials, voters, and the many Lee County residents who still hadn’t gotten their “selfie with Clay”! He went to lunch at the Dairy Bar, where he spoke with over 75 voters about the issues important to them in the midterm election. And, he finished the day by headlining the Lee County Democratic Party’s “Clay Day” rally!
Clay spoke to a standing-room only crowd of over 75 Lee County residents. Most were Democrats, but there were Unaffilaited voters there, as well. The event had some competition from a beach music band playing at the Temple, but Clay, joking that, “hey, I can sing, too,” kept the crowd engaged and excited! Clay talked about education, bringing jobs to the district, and veteran’s issues. He spoke about the need for a congressional representative who knows the district’s voters, and would be willing to meet with them.
And, he laid down a challenge. Apparently, WRAL has been trying to line up a forum with both Clay and his opponent, but Renee Ellmers has, so far, not responded. Local newspaper The Sanford Herald also has a forum every year, but it is still unclear whether “Representative” Ellmers will attend.
“Bill O’Reilly can moderate the thing, if he wants,” said Clay. “I am ready, right here in Sanford, to talk about the issues and talk about [Ellmers’] record.” Sounds like a challenge to us!…

I do hope that Renee Ellmers answers the challenge from Clay. I would enjoy seeing a debate between the two candidates.
I like these pictures of Clay from February 27th – It was the day Clay filed the paperwork at the North Carolina Board of Elections
