“Clay Aiken Has An Outstanding Character”

 

It’s the beginning of a new week…and less than 100 days until the up-coming U.S. Election.

It has been 2 days since the successful “An Evening With:  Congressman John Lewis & Mayor Chris Rey” in Lillington NC.  As expected, more pictures became available.

Listening to an interesting program

Two famous guys taking a selfie!

Was there a party after the program??

Everyone looks excited and ready to get the vote out in November.

I was introduced to a new blog on Sunday morning.  It is called BlueNC.   According to their site:

BlueNC is an independent website committed to progressive politics in North Carolina. Other than being registered Democrats, site owners have no formal affiliation with the North Carolina Democratic Party. BlueNC is a private business and receives no funding from any government or nonprofit organization.

On Sunday, Nancy Miller Martin wrote and published an article about Clay Aiken. The 5 paragraph article has some interesting facts about how the author met Clay and conveys her excitement about Clay running for Congress.  She ends the blog by saying:

If you think Clay doesn’t know the issues, think again. Why do you think he is running? It’s because he believes he can make a difference and nobody else seems to be doing it. Have a conversation with him and you will learn how much he knows and he will talk to you like your neighbor. I believe you judge people by their character. No matter what they do in life, that character is still there. Clay has an outstanding character and that’s why he is my choice for Congress in District 2.

I hope you will take the time to visit this article by Ms Martin.  I am sure you will enjoy every word.  You can see the entire blog at BLUENC

Paul B. Johnson writes for the High Point Enterprise.  He wrote an article about the Clay Aiken/Renee Ellmers campaigns.

hpe.com = Aiken seeks to close money gap with Ellmers

Democratic congressional hopeful Clay Aiken hopes that he can become an idol of campaign supporters as he seeks to compete in donations against second-term Rep. Renee Ellmers, R-2nd.

Aiken, who made his fame 10 years ago on the TV singing competition “American Idol,” reported earlier this month that his campaign raised more than $450,000 in the second fundraising quarter from April 1-June 30. Aiken, who announced his first try for elected office earlier this year, has brought national attention to what otherwise would be a low-profile congressional race in a district covering a large part of Randolph County. The vocal artist and educator who lives in Cary is the most well-recognized figure in the country this year challenging for a congressional seat…

…On his website, Aiken made reference to the controversy as part of challenging Ellmers to debate him.
“Much has been said about the remarks Renee Ellmers made recently at a conservative women’s panel. She said her words were taken out of context. I’m not going to judge whether or not that’s true. But I am going to point out one thing she said — and that’s her apparent desire to have an ‘open conversation,’” Aiken said.
Aiken said an open conversation should involve a debate between him and Ellmers before voters…

  1. ANY profile picture of Clay is good! Love the picture with the group. Looks like he is trying to photobomb, lol! Also, check out how long those arms are. His hand lands on the back of the far woman to his left! Great pictures today and looking forward to lots more on the 30th after the fundraising! Clay for Congress. Loved the articles and I really enjoyed reading them!

  2. Loved the articles, very interesting and loved the pics, thanks so much Musicfan, I enjoy and appreciate all the posts! xox

  3. For over a decade, I have observed Clay at concerts, in stage plays, on television, at galas for his National Inclusion Project, in foreign countries for UNICEF, through his inspirational memoir, “Learning To Sing: Hearing the Music In Your Life”, and now in his run for Congress. As a school teacher for many years, I have likewise been a keen observer of a vast variety of personalities. I’ve concluded that Clay is truly a man of extraordinary character. Fame and fortune and a plethora of nasty and fundamentally untrue criticism via the Internet and media have not caused him to waver from a positive spirit, his high moral standards, his religious beliefs, his compassion for those who are disadvantaged and discarded, or his determination to make a difference. I believe one would be hard-pressed to discover a more superior example of a commendable human being. CLAY AIKEN IS AND ALWAYS WILL BE ALL ABOUT CHARACTER!

    Thanks for the super coverage!

    • Wow heartaiken, wish we could bottle him up cos we could make a ton of money on selling it to people who have NO character! Wonderful post! So true!

  4. It is well worth the time to read the 2 articles (BlueNC & HPE) mentioned in this post. Clay is being followed on the campaign trail by folks across this nation and they like what they are seeing.
