Clay Aiken's Congressional Opponent Dies
He was a local business owner in Asheboro, North Carolina, who founded an elastics company and had served on the local city council. His death comes just days after voting for his bid for Congress ended inconclusively.
Crisco and Aiken, a former runner-up on American Idol, were locked in a close battle that was too close to call as polls closed last Tuesday (May 6). Aiken reportedly held a 369-vote lead after the final ballot was counted, a close-enough margin that could have led to a recount. more on this story
