Clay Aiken is trying to change this career again

Say in Youtube video, Clay Aiken announces that he is running for Congress as a Democrat in the sixth district of North Carolina, his hometown. “As Democrats, we have to be better at speaking up and using our voices, because those people aren’t going to calm down anytime soon,” he said in the clip.

Meanwhile, in a press release, the “American Idol” runner-up added: “As a loud and proud Democrat, I intend to use my voice to get real results. for families in North Carolina, just as David Price has done for decades” (via Related press).

This is Aiken’s second venture into politics. In 2014, he ran for Congress in North Carolina’s 2nd District, but received only 41 percent of the vote in the heavily Republican area, according to the Associated Press. This time around, he may have the upper hand, as the newly created District 6 leans toward Democrats. If elected, Aiken plans to tackle a number of pressing issues, including climate change, income inequality, gun violence, racism and equal voting rights. Aiken will also become the first openly LGBTQ person elected to Congress from the South if he wins in November.
