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.
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.
From Fayetteville to the town of Dunn, NC… According to twitter and Facebook, Clay stopped into Sherry’s Bakery for some lunch. I bet it was good! The community seemed happy to see him!!
Tammy’s friend commented: Bessie Mclaughlin He have my family vote Bessie Mclaughlin And am start tellin everone around here so they can tell the people at church and other church they go to we had already said we were voting for him.
It looks like Clay might have picked up some votes today!!
It seems like Tuesday was a busy, but important day for Clay.
It is so interesting following his campaign.
I enjoy seeing the places he visits and the people he meets.
What a smart man!
