Second Place Again! Clay Aiken Loses His Bid For Congress!

Filed under: Clay AikenPolitik

Aw, poor Clay Aiken.

After taking second place on American Idol and later losing to Arsenio Hall on Celebrity Apprentice, the singer is a runner-up once again.

After a hard-fought race to represent North Carolina's second district, Clay has failed to unseat Renee Elmers.

With roughly 44 percent of the vote compared to the incumbent's 56 percent, Clay could never quite build up the momentum he needed in the largely Republican state.

And to add ignominy to injury, Clay's campaign bus even broke down on Tuesday morning!

We can't think of anything more heartbreakingly symbolic than that!

Oh well! We're proud of you for running a courageous race and trying to make a positive change! For that we say congratulations, Clay.

And yet a simple note on the restaurant's cash register has changed so much for the people who work there! Here's what the note says:

Filed under: Clay AikenPolitik

No one told Clay Aiken running for Congress would be easy. And if they did, he should probably fire them from his campaign.

The former American Idol star participated in his first political debate on Monday night, and it was a slugfest!

Clay's opponent, Republican Renee Elmers, took jab after jab at Clay, mostly related to his career as an entertainer.

She even blamed him for the economy, which doesn't make a whole lot of sense given that she's the incumbent and he hasn't actually served in Congress at all yet.
