No Congress For Clay Aiken, But He Did Score Something Last Night...

The 'American Idol' alum is getting his own TV doc.

Republican incumbent Renee Ellmers was re-elected to a third term representing North Carolina’s 2nd Congressional District, effectively defeating Clay Aiken in his first bid for office.

The "American Idol" alum announced his campaign back in February and narrowly won the North Carolina Democratic primary against the late Keith Crisco.

"I'm not a politician — I don’t ever want to be one, but I do want to help bring back, at least to my corner of North Carolina, the idea that someone can go to Washington to represent all the people," Aiken said in his "Open Door" campaign video. "Whether they voted for you or not. And maybe we can play a small part in igniting that change across the rest of our country. This is why I’m running for Congress."

However, it's not all a loss for Aiken. Esquire announced that the singer will star in a four-hour docu-series coming trailing his candidacy from the announcement all the way to the 2014 midterm elections.
