Less than a week after losing to former American Idol Clay Aiken in a close North Carolina primary election for Congress, 71-year-old businessman Keith Crisco died in a fall at his home in Asheboro on Monday. The race to take on incumbent GOP Rep. Renee Ellmers had been deemed too close to call initially, but Aiken was ahead of Crisco by around 369 votes. Prior to his death, Crisco had been expected to concede to Aiken on Tuesday.
