We admit, we were hoping Clay Aiken would win the democratic ticket in North Carolina’s 2nd District — but not like this!

The American Idol alum will most likely be victorious after his opponent Keith Crisco suddenly died today!

According to local reports, Crisco suffered a fall in his home in Asheboro, NC. He was 71 years old.

Clay offered his condolences to Mr. Crisco’s friends and relatives, saying:

"I am stunned and deeply saddened by Keith Crisco’s death. He was a gentleman, a good and honorable man and an extraordinary public servant. I was honored to know him. I am suspending all campaign activities as we pray for his family and friends.”

Clay was leading Crisco by 369 votes after the election results were deemed too close to call last week. Crisco was waiting for a recount before he conceded.

Aiken will likely now take on republican incumbent Renee Ellmers in November.

We wish you luck, Clay!

And our thoughts are with the Crisco family. It sounds like Keith was an incredible man!

    There has been lots of buzz about the GAY MAFIA and how powerful they have become
    Does anyone else see a connection ?

    His opponent Renee Elmers has a good track record to run on
    Also a while back it came out that Clay had posted some dick shots, which is never a cool idea

    Thought Perez was up to date….the above picture says otherwise. Saw the news clip tonight and I guess a fall was the cause of death. It's scary how quickly things can happen.

    Re: barb – A fall? As a mobility impaired senior, this is something that always concerns me re falls which I am terrified of, since I live alone.
    Don't know much about Clay, he is not in the district I vote in and just sent my absentee ballot in the mail today (only way to vote IMO).
