Clay Aiken is planning a three-week campaign bus tour through the 2nd Congressional District beginning next week.
Aiken, a Democrat who rose to fame as an “American Idol” contestant, is challenging two-term incumbent Congresswoman Renee Ellmers of Dunn.
The Aiken campaign didn’t offer up a schedule, but is publicizing a community Town Hall meeting in Randolph County on Oct. 15.
Campaign spokeswoman Tucker Middleton said Aiken plans to spend Oct. 15 through Election Day on the bus tour.
The Republican-leaning district covers all or parts of nine counties, including suburbs in western Wake County, parts of Harnett and Chatham, Fort Bragg and the neighborhoods around it, Moore, and most of Randolph.
