'American Idol' Alum Clay Aiken Running for Congress Again in North Carolina


Former American Idol contestant Clay Aiken is once again running for Congress, throwing his hat in the ring as a Democrat for North Carolina’s proposed 6th district, which is expected to be heavily left-leaning.

Clay Aiken, who is aiming to succeed retiring Rep. David Price (D-NC), announced his bid Monday in a video posted to his social media accounts. In the video, he pledged to promote progressive values, including addressing “systemic racism,” ending “gun violence,” and tackling “climate change.”

He also attacked Republican members of Congress, smearing Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-NC) as a “white nationalist.”
