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!
