“So, I Just Met Clay Aiken. Day. Made.”


On Tuesday, August 5, 2014, Clay Aiken attended the 13th Annual North Carolina Defense and Economic Development Trade Show.  Held at Fayetteville Technical Community College, the event was hosted Senator Richard Burr, and Senator Kay Hagan. The event is considered North Carolina’s premier defense trade show.

FTCC President Dr. Keen greets @clayaiken as he enters the @NCMBC #NCDTS.

According to the Trade Show website:

“The Defense Trade Show is an important event for North Carolina businesses and employees and a boon for the public-private partnership in the defense industry,” said Senator Burr. “North Carolina proudly hosts a large military presence in our state, and it is important that our state’s businesses get connected with defense contractors and DoD officials.”

North Carolina is home to the third largest military presence, six major military bases and the finest higher education system in the country. Home to world-renowned research, development and manufacturing capacity, North Carolina is strategically positioned to become and remain a leader in the worldwide defense industry.

It is always fun to see tweets that support Clay and recognize that he is learning, talking and supporting the people of District 2.

The 2nd Congressional District of NC has a strong active military and veterans presence. I’m a veteran and I support @clayaiken

I am so glad that Clay made a visit to this important Trade Show.  It shows that he cares about his home state of North Carolina.  Interesting…I didn’t see any mention or pictures of Representative Renee Ellmers at the event.

  1. Clay is literally everywhere!!! I can’t imagine how strenuous his itinerary is, but I know his willingness to meet and greet the people of his district proves his sincerity and work ethic in creating legislation that will edify his state. It certainly appears he is well-received and is gathering an encouraging number of votes. I honestly don’t believe there is anyone else who has his attributes. Clay is without doubt the man for this Congressional seat!

  2. Yes he is a very smart man! I'm so happy to see that everyone is starting to see it too. He needs to keep the momentum going. He looks and sounds great. CLAY FOR NC
