Do you know the most listened-to news radio program in the United States? It is NPR’s Morning Edition, a week-day, two hour show that takes its listeners around the world to hear all the news.
Since the show debuted in 1979, Morning Edition has garnered many top broadcasting honors, including the George Foster Peabody Award and the Alfred I. duPont-Columbia University Award.
This is all good news for Clay Aiken. Read the following tweet from Tamara Keith, at NPR Radio:
I look forward to hearing about Clay and his campaign!
Clay wrote two interesting posts on Wednesday:
It’s been 11 years since I was on the cover of Rolling Stone. I was a North Carolina kid who achieved a dream because of the people back home. And now I’m in the pages of Rolling Stone again, but for a very different reason. North Carolina isn’t being served the way it was even just 11 years ago. I’ll always do my best to serve our state and the Second District. I hope you’ll read the story, and I hope to earn your vote.
Thanks to Rolling Stone magazine for a headline that gets straight to the point. The people of the Second District deserve better than we’re getting right now. I’ll always do my best to serve the people back home, and I hope to earn your vote. Only 20 days left. Help us win this thing:www.clayaiken.com/contribute
What is the headline? Clay Aiken Wants Your Vote Again
Paige Rentz is a writer for the Fayetteville Observer. She posted the following information on twitter:

.@ClayForNC reports $355K raised in Q3; broke the $1 million mark since beginning campaign in February.
Just a bit later, the FEC posted the 3rd quarter report and it was an excellent report:
$339,000 from individuals
$339,000 Cash on Hand.
$186,000 from PACs
Over $500,000 Cash on Hand.
It’s great news! It looks like Clay raised more money than his opponent again this quarter and he has now raised over $1 million… all in just 8 months.
Clay wrote a nice report on his Facebook page today that reviewed his first full day on the bus!
Great first full day of the bus tour! Breakfast at Mrs. Wengers in Sanford, visited Chatham Trades, Inc. in Siler City, toured downtown Liberty with the mayor, got my first-ever straight razor shave at Marc’s Barber Shop, and hosted our first town hall in Asheboro. #nc02
Judi Brinegar, a writer at the Courier-Tribune in Asheboro, NC wrote an excellent article about Clay’s Town Hall meeting in Asheboro Wednesday night.
Aiken holds town hall meeting
Democrat Clay Aiken made an appearance in Asheboro Wednesday night, the first in a series of town hall meetings he will attend in the few weeks remaining before the Nov. 4 election.
The tour will enable Aiken, who is running against Republican Renee Ellmers for a seat in Congress representing the Second District (including Randolph County), to spend more time in parts of the district that aren’t typically visited by candidates running for federal office.
Aiken held court at the historic Randolph County Courthouse in downtown Asheboro, sharing his platform and fielding questions from those in attendance.
“This is the very first day of the tour and the very first town hall meeting I’ve done,” he said. “I’m going to be very transparent. We might not agree, but I am going to be honest with you tonight.”
The rest of the article reports on the issues that Clay talked about at the meeting. I hope you will take a moment and read the article at COURIERTRIBUNE
Yes…Wednesday was a great day for Clay Aiken!
