Could Clay Aiken be North Carolina’s New Congressman?
Openly gay singer Clay Aiken has his sights set on once again trying to win America’s votes, but this time not for another singing competition, but for a seat in Congress, according to sources. The American Idol runner-up seems to be seriously vying for a seat in D.C. to represent North Carolina’s 2nd congressional district. The 35-year-old father of one, who is originally from Raleigh, has already spoken to political operatives in D.C. According to the Washington Blade: “One Democratic source said Aiken made phone calls to gauge support, talked to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and has met with figures in Raleigh, N.C., about a potential bid. Although it’s unclear when Aiken might formally announce a decision, the source said Aiken is ‘actively considering’ it and ‘sounding and acting like a candidate.’”
All right Claymates, get ready to vote!
