Clay Aiken might have come in second on American Idol, and The Apprentice for that matter, but it seems he’s hoping he’ll come out on top on Election Day 2014.

According to the Washington Blade, the singer is “actively considering” a bid for North Carolina’s 2nd congressional district in the U.S. House of Representatives.

The paper, which calls itself “America’s leading gay news source,” reports that two Democratic sources — who spoke on condition of anonymity — say the Raleigh native has spoken with political consultants. They also say that Aiken already started “running phone calls to gauge support, talked to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and has met with figures in Raleigh, N.C.,” including a political strategist who worked with Al Gore during his bid for president, about potentially running for the Congressional seat this fall.
