Raleigh, NC - Most Americans know Clay Aiken as the runner-up on Season 2 of American Idol, but you may soon know him as Congressman Aiken if his fans have anything to say about it.
The North Carolina native only announced his candidacy on Monday, but thousands of supporters are already rallying behind the Idol by texting "vote" to 4365702.
One supporter posted on a Clay Aiken fan page, "Hey y'all, it's time for us Aik-corns to unite behind Clay. Let's all text "vote" at 8 p.m. and send him to Washington."
Records show that Aiken fans as far as Yugoslavia have already texted in their vote, but North Carolina election officials say they are investigating whether the votes can be counted with the actual election vote tally in November.
