Apparently Clay Aiken has decided this whole singing thing is just not working out the way he hoped
. Clay is set to announce that he is running for Congress in his home state of North Carolina. He would run as a Democrat and would face several other challengers in the Democratic primary scheduled for May 6th. That means he has five months to convince the people in his district that he is the right person for the job. Clay plans on singing his speeches and the only question he will debate is whether he and Ruben Studdard are the best 1-2 combination in American Idol history. According to The Washington Blade, Clay has been meeting with campaign type people and doing what is necessary to make sure he doesn't have to spend any of his own money to win the primary and then general election.
