newsobserver.com: Under The Dome – Aiken plans campaign bus tour

by Lynn Bonner

Clay Aiken is planning a three-week campaign bus tour through the 2nd Congressional District beginning next week.

Aiken, a Democrat who rose to fame as an “American Idol” contestant, is challenging two-term incumbent Congresswoman Renee Ellmers of Dunn.

The Aiken campaign didn’t offer up a schedule, but is publicizing a community Town Hall meeting in Randolph County on Oct. 15.

Campaign spokeswoman Tucker Middleton said Aiken plans to spend Oct. 15 through Election Day on the bus tour.

The Republican-leaning district covers all or parts of nine counties, including suburbs in western Wake County, parts of Harnett and Chatham, Fort Bragg and the neighborhoods around it, Moore, and most of Randolph.

I think this is a brilliant idea.  Clay will have the opportunity to visit almost all of the 2nd Congressional District and meet so many people.  And think of that bus coming into town.  It’s certainly something that will stand out in people’s memories.  It reminds me of the old campaign trains from many years ago!!  What do you think??

On Tuesday night, Clay was one of 6 speakers at a political meeting in Dunn, North Carolina. Rep. Renee Ellmers also spoke at the event. According to the Dunn Chamber:

The Governmental Affairs Committee of the Dunn Chamber held a very successful Candidates Forum for Candidates for NC House, NC Senate and US Congress. All six candidates came well prepared and presented their views well.

The Dunn Chamber posted the following picture on their Facebook site.
