Just a month ago, we launched a campaign to make Clay Aiken the next Congressman from North Carolina’s Second District. Clay was already a household name, but some wondered why he decided to run for Congress.
Clay Aiken officially filed this morning to run for U.S. Congress in North Carolina’s Second Congressional District. Family, friends and supporters joined him as he filed his candidacy paperwork at the North Carolina Board of Elections in downtown Raleigh.
