It's been 11 years since I was on the cover of Rolling Stone. I was a North Carolina kid who achieved a dream because of the people back home. And now I'm in the pages of Rolling Stone again, but for a very different reason. North Carolina isn't being served the way it was even just 11 years ago. I'll always do my best to serve our state and the Second District. I hope you'll read the story, and I hope to earn your vote.

NPR Radio Story

Audio and reporting....

Just finished listening to it and reading the story.

I then put myself into the shoes of someone who didn't even know he was running, and who might stumble upon this story on their radio or in their Facebook news feed.

I think Clay comes off really well. There's a few fans that thinks this story is "lightweight," but we've also been following his campaign for 8 straight months. For those not "in the know," I believe he comes off as having some substance.

JMO.

I did the same thing and do think he came off well. Held his ground and was very serious about the campaign. Yes it was a bit on the light side but sometimes that works on NPR.

I really think almost every media piece on him is going to start off a bit lightweight. It's a good "breaking in" point. For some reason, entertainers getting into politics have to have that entry level like that.

The Esquire piece is the only one that isn't truly lightweight, IMO. I do wish more people would read it, as it so shows his passion for what he's doing now.
