Aiken is officially throwing his hat in the ring to run as a Democrat against conservative Rep. Renee Ellmers (R-N.C.), according to the Raleigh News & Observer:
“I saw this as the best place I could serve, because I think Washington, in general, is dysfunctional,” Aiken said. “I think it’s high time we put people in Congress who were not beholden to their party, and not beholden to anything but the people who they live around and grew up around, in my case.”
Aiken qualifications do not include a law degree or any political experience. But then again Reagan was an actor and look where that got him
After watching the video below (It’s painful) I’m going to reserve any snark and just say that although he is well-intentioned, he is clearly on a misguided career path. Stick to what you know- SING baby, SING.
