See American Idol contestant Clay Aiken announce run for Congress

Discusses bi-partisanship, economy, in video

Former American Idol contestant Clay Aiken has announced he's running for North Carolina's 2nd congressional district against incumbent Republican Renee Ellmers.

Aiken, a bestselling author and recording artist, cast member of Monty Python's Spamalot on Broadway, and former contestant on Celebrity Apprentice, discusses his childhood poverty and work for President Bush as motivations to run.

He also updated his hair from its American Idol wave of spikes phase to a more congressional part.

Ellmers for her part insinuated that Aiken was just bored, and that if he couldn't win American Idol, he couldn't win a congressional election.

See Aiken's campaign announcement below.
