Rep. Renee Ellmers (R-N.C.) isn’t too impressed that her potential new congressional challenger, could be Clay Aiken.
In a radio interview the congresswoman was asked about Aiken who is considering running:
“Apparently, his performing career is not going so well. He’s very bored,” Ellmers said. “I’ll tell you, I’m a little hurt. I think he has an incredible voice and he’s incredibly talent, and I’d rather have his support.”
“As we know, he didn’t really fare all that well. He was runner-up,” she said. “He also didn’t win on [‘Celebrity Apprentice’].. so I guess the next step is Congress. You know, we don’t have a very high approval rating so I guess the bar’s been lowered for him.”
