Washington Blade (America’s #1 Gay News Source???? I thought that was Media Matters)

Gay singer and “American Idol” runner-up Clay Aiken is actively considering a bid to represent North Carolina’s 2nd congressional district in the U.S. House, according to two Democratic sources familiar with his plans.

The sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the 35-year-old Raleigh native has taken initial steps for a run, including consulting with political operatives in Washington, D.C., about a bid for the seat.

Clay Aiken is "actively considering" a run for Congress, sources say (Blade file photo by Michael Key).

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.”

To help explore a run, the source said Aiken has been working with Betsy Conti, a Raleigh-based political strategist who’s worked for former North Carolina Gov. Bev Purdue and Democratic presidential nominee Al Gore in addition to serving as Maryland’s deputy labor secretary in the Glendening administration. It’s unclear whether Aiken has formally hired her or anyone else to help with his bid.

Another Democratic source said Aiken was in D.C. last month meeting with pollsters at Hart Research Associates to examine polling data with one of the partners at the firm.

  1. It looks like he combs his hair with a hand grenade

  2. Elections are only popularity contest anymore.
    Say what you want but he could win it in a mudslide.

  3. Raleigh is where N.C. State is located, a hotbed of faggotry. My niece was on the lesbian rugby team.

  4. My educated guess is that the left is actively searching out gay candidates so that they can use they same tactic that was used to silence the opposition to Obama; if you are opposed you are a hater. Get ready for the year of the queer.

  5. FORCE we now our gay agenda

    fa la la

    fa la la

    la. la. la.

  6. Everybody’s arming up and wrapping themselves in the second amendment, but nobody’s exercising it.
    A few rounds in some hurtful places would bring much of this crap to a screeching halt.
    Jesus said to turn the other cheek, but look what happened to him.

  7. NC now home of unstable, militant fece-dick fetishists. But hey, not like there’s anything wrong with that….

  8. I wouldn’t assume anything at this point. All we know is that he’s been holed up in a log cabin, woodshedding with a few pollsters.

  9. Yup, Washington needs another fudge packer.

  10. He was runner up on a show that is all about free enterprise, marketing, and selling at a profit. So why would he run as a democrat?

  11. Boobie
    There’s a time and season for all things, turning the other cheek may not be best thing to do now.

  12. He’ll fit right in – another Democrat learning on the job since I’m sure he has no background to fill the position.

  13. Oh please. The dem running against him will eat him for lunch. And not in a good way, either.

  14. They say that politics is Hollywood for ugly people.

    In this example I guess it for ugly people and fags too.

    …but he was on American Idol, so I guess he’s as qualified as any other elected official.

  16. We need to run an extra Tea Party Candidate for every “extra” candidate the Dems are running to throw the elections. We should also be infiltrating the Democrats with Conservatives.
    Let them have the fun of traitors in their own party.
    Time to outplay these rats or we will never win an election.

  17. Looks like Clay decided not to swallow and instead
    applied some special Diaz Hair Mousse.

  18. Will Ruben Studdard be his running mate?

  19. This is all about attempting, at all cost, overturning North Carolina’s constitutional amendment preventing gay marriage.
    The people of N.C. VOTED (62% for traditional marriage – 38% against) to confirm marriage is only between one man and one woman, but useful deviant tools like N.C. native Clay Aiken will never give up trying change the law, so that it supports his sick agenda.
