You have probably heard that Clay Aiken of American Idol fame was running for Congress in North Carolina’s 2nd District. But, did you know that he has a primary opponent? He has two actually, Toni Morris and Keith Crisco are both on the Democratic ticket with Aiken. Crisco seems to be the one with money – at least he is the one spending his money on an ad that calls Aiken – “No Show Clay Aiken.” The ad claims that after being appointed to the Presidential Commission for People with Disabilities, by then-President George W. Bush, Aiken skipped every meeting.
The winner of the Democratic Primary will take on the winner of the Republican Primary – the candidates in that contest are Renee Ellmers and Frank Roche. Go to ncvotetracker.com to see how many people have voted in the 2nd Congressional District.
