Former American Idol runner-up Clay Aiken is running for Congress in North Carolina. Yesterday people cast their ballots and Clay Aiken received 400 more votes than the closest person running against him. Out of 28,000 votes cast, Clay received about 40% while another person received 39% and the third place finisher about 20%. Although the race has not been called, chances are Clay is going to win this. First, he has a wide enough margin to be outside the automatic recount. Second, he is above the 40% threshold which means there will not be a runoff. Clay will probably lose in the election in November, but hey, that sing-a-long he will have at his party will probably be pretty good.
