Clay Aiken may be getting political in a big way.
The 35-year-old American Idol runner-up is reportedly "actively considering" running for Congress to represent North Carolina's 2nd congressional district in the U.S. House (Aiken is a Raleigh native), according to the Washington Blade.
The site reports that Aiken has "taken initial steps for a run, including consulting with political operatives in Washington, D.C.," in addition to meeting with Raleigh locals and talking to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.
Aiken certainly wouldn't be to first star to dip their toes into the political pond. While we wait to see if Aiken makes his big move into politics, here are some other celebs who've made the transition into political office!
