Former 'American Idol' star Clay Aiken is running for Congress in North Carolina, in-state Democrats with knowledge of his plans tell The Hill.
Aiken, a former runner-up on the top-rated show and Raleigh native, plans to run against Rep. Renee Ellmers (R-N.C.) in a Republican-leaning district. WRAL first reported that the singer was assembling a campaign team and prepping a launch for next month.

I guess he will have to play the dick card instead of the race card.
Low information voters love celebrities. Geesh. I suppose this loser (American Idiot 2nd Place) is an expert on abortion and global warming. I had a battalion commander once who loved to say, “Second place is like kissing your sister.” LOL!
hey, maybe Richard Simmons can run for congress in Northern California too.
Now here is a democrat that can really run under the teabagger label!
You don't need knowledge, intelligence, experience, credentials, or skill.
All you need is for people to like you and/or your positions. That's it. We've seen this over and over again.
On both sides of the aisle.
Rule One: NO POOFTERS!!!
And Al Franken will be re elected in Minnesota....
He’ll fit right in with the Dog and Pony Show congress, LOL
His 15 minutes of fame was (to me) 14 minutes, 58 seconds to long. Clay what issues will be on your platform gay marriage or will it be taxes? Clay being in Congress is not done on tv with people calling an 800 number (thank god, if you could the uninformed voters, usually called Dems, would vote 2 or more times) and being a ‘star’ is not a requirement, too. Knowing what the people want is the requirement and I doubt they want you.
We'll be lucky if it's just that. I think he'll try to let people in the back door.
Looks like the creepy poof is hugh and series in running.
So many stools to push in, so little time.
He’ll lose, nice kid, but you stand for the wrong things!
Clay O’ my Aiken butt hasn’t got a chance.
Yeah, but at one time I thought the same thing about Al Franken.
Exactly. Never underestimate the power of retarded and low information voters. Without them, Barry would still be making signs and posters and shouting through a megaphone on the streets of Chicago.
How about Honey Boo Boo instead?
Ellmers is terrible and an amnesty supporter. Frank Roche is running against her. He even attacked massive legal immigration.
Ellmers immigration oped
If an individual wants to come to this country to work, to provide for his family and contribute to his community, he should be allowed to do so. Our focus should be on his intent, not his circumstance.
It is a Republican leaning district.
Id vote for Aiken if I could get rid of Ellmers for 2 years. Maybe Aiken will get sick of it and convince Aaron Schock to free up another seat held by a RINO.
Franken was running statewide in Minnesota in a democrat year.
Fag boy is running in a Republican district in what it not likely to be a democrat year. Apples and oranges.
Is Khent excited?
Rats are very unlikely to seriously compete in the district but they do have a decent recruit in former State Commerce Secretary Keith Crisco. They don’t want this little queen getting in his way.
Well, he didn’t win. He won by a few votes, and it was later discovered that many votes were from felony convicts. If those votes were removed he would have lost, or they would have ginned up another box of votes out of the trunk of a car.
He should have been tossed from office when the voter fraud was revealed. I’ll never understand why he wasn’t.
There should be mandatory jail time for candidates who win by fraud.
Flamer running as a Democrat....I’m SHOCKED!!! /sarc
What a DUMB statement!!! You want Nancy Pelosi as Speaker again Start THINKING.
Khent used to listen to that when he was in his aerobics phase; it’s on his iPod.
OTOH, ever since he went ballistic, the little bitch is on lockdown and gets no Internet, TV, etc. I told him he was 2 weeks to move out, the little poof.
And still had to be bailed out by the RAT vote fraud machine...
Pelosi as speaker is fantasy.
There is no way House Republicans get less than 225 seats.
The only way Pelosi becomes Speaker is if a dozen House Republicans decide to vote Pelosi in revenge for Boehner passing amnesty.
All these Democrats retiring and enough of these Democrats who survived based on 2012 turnout are going to lose.
Democrats are wrong on everything for their district: Obamacare, immigration and cutting off Veterans.
Id be happy to see Congresscritters as stupid as Ellmers gone for 2 years.
The thing about that is unless they are incumbents (or holders of other powerful offices like then WA State AG Christine Gregoire who stole the 2004 Governor's race) it's unlikely they were involved in the fraud themselves, rather others do it on their behalf. I doubt one could prove Franken himself committed a crime.
YOU and other Purists will see to it that Pelosi is Speaker again....mark my words.
