Clay Aiken stumps for votes in Greenville

Posted: Updated:
GREENVILLE, N.C. - Senator Kay Hagan and reality show runner-up Clay Aiken paid a visit to Greenville to drum up support for their campaigns.

They're two of several prominent names at this year's North Carolina Young Democrats convention taking place in Greenville.

Many young Democrats came from as far away as Raleigh and Asheville.

They're in the East to network and learn from each other.

The students and young professionals are also here to get a glimpse of big-name Democrats like Senator Hagan.

"I know that you're going to make all of our communities and all of North Carolina great," Sen. Hagan said. "You're going to make our leaders proud, and one day, I hope it is you standing behind this podium."

Both she and Aiken are excited to meet the younger generation.

"Anybody who's willing to be a part of the process I think is wonderful," Aiken said. "Being able to talk to them is great, and hopefully they'll leave here and be able to take some of that enthusiasm out to their schools, their neighborhoods or their areas."

The convention continues through this weekend.

State Attorney General Roy Cooper will speak tomorrow.
