He said that he was running for congress in North Carolina, in his next attempt to represent the state where he live in his childhood. He addresses himself as a “proud and loud Democrat” and he is wishing to run in district which covers Durham and the Chapel Hill area. Democrat who currently running in this particular area, announces his retirement two months ago.
He added, “Just like David has done for many years, I will also try to use my voice to release results for families.” Furthermore, he said, “I will always be there for my own principles and stand for income equality, health care, inclusions, and also for climate change.”
He had already won the Democratic primary when he ran for Congress in 2014 but was defeated in the general election.
In December, the North Carolina Supreme Court postponed the state’s 2022 primary election from March 7 to May 16, citing a “need for urgency” in providing challengers of the state legislature’s gerrymandered political maps more time to pursue a legal battle to have them redrawn. Three lawsuits have been filed in state court in Raleigh by Democrats and voting-rights organizations challenging the new lines for state legislative districts and North Carolina’s 14 congressional seats.
Mr. Aiken added in his statement, “In Congress, I’ll utilize my voice to argue for common-sense policies that foster continuing job growth and healthy communities.” “Many of these political disputes separate us as individuals, jeopardize our democracy, and undermine America.” North Carolinians are concerned about health-care affordability and rising prices.”
Mr. Aiken was a special education teacher in Wake County after studying at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. According to his website, he was a co-founder of the National Inclusion Project, which advocates for challenged children, and a national goodwill ambassador for UNICEF.
