Are You Ready for Congressman Clay Aiken?
And, as it turns out, Clay's run at political office is true. A source close to the American Idol alum tells CB! Aiken has expressed some interest in public office as of late.
The North Carolina 2nd is currently represented by Republican Renee Ellmers. It is, however, a typically Democratic district, encompassing the state capital of Raleigh, as well as all or parts of seven other North Carolina counties.
If Aiken were to win, he'd certainly not be the first person to make a jump from the entertainment industry into politics. He wouldn't even be the first former reality star in Congress, just ask former Real World star and current tea partier Sean Duffy.
