Singer, former American Idol runner-up Clay Aiken’s opponent for the Democratic nomination for North Carolina’s 2nd Congressional District, Keith Crisco, died suddenly Monday.
According to a report in Florida Today:
Keith Crisco, 71, a former North Carolina secretary of Commerce, died “after an accidental fall” at his home in Asheboro, N.C., according to a statement from his family. A woman who answered the telephone at Asheboro Elastics, which Crisco founded, confirmed the news to USA TODAY and said the company’s workers were in shock.
The entertainer led Crisco by 369 votes for the Democratic nod in North Carolina’s 2nd Congressional District, but the race was too close to call and not finalized. The Democratic nominee will go on to face GOP Rep. Renee Ellmers in the fall.
