Wow. Well, rest in peace.

It will be interesting to see what their laws are, if a candidate for office has died.

Now if he had been facing a Republican the media would blame the GOP for his death, wonder if they will do the same for Aiken..either way..RIP

In this case, Aiken led the voting by 369 votes, and Crisco was considering asking for a run off. So I’m sure Aiken will be certified as Democrat nominee.

This is NC 2, against Renee Ellmers.

The last I have seen written about the election ...

5/07/2014 – Underdog Clay Aiken, aged 35, led against Democrat primary opponent Keith Crisco, by a razor-thin 372 votes out of 28,000 cast.

So, Aiken is the winner and face the GOP incumbent, Mrs. Ellmers, in the general election.

Information is incomplete; however, early information indicates he suffered injuries from a fall around 1 p.m. at his home at 1263 Thayer Drive in Asheboro. He was reported dead at the scene when emergency workers arrived there.

12 years ago, incumbent Sherman Block was in a runoff for Los Angeles County sheriff. November 2002. Block dies of a heart attack the Sunday before the election. The next day, the county board wanted everyone to vote for the dead because they did not like the live Lee Baca. They wanted us to ‘trust them’ to pick the right live Sheriff. Baca won, and won twice more, and retired this year, interestingly under a cloud of scandal himself.

How old was Crisco? Some times people have a stroke, fall and are pronounced dead from the fall. Only later they discover that they had had a stroke. It happened to my aunt. Another relative broke her leg in a fall, went to the hospital and the next day she had a stroke and died. Or did she have a 2nd stroke?

Just because he died does not mean he can’t win a democrat primary.

After further reading, I discovered that Crisco slipped and fell.

It would be quite ironic if Crisco slipped on some Crisco.

"In 2010 falls resulted in 540,000 deaths up from 350,000 in 1990, making them the second most common cause of death from unintentional injuries after motor vehicle collisions. They were the most common cause of injury seen in emergency departments in the United States. One study found that there were nearly 7.9 million emergency department visits involving falls, nearly 35.7% of all encounters."

Dear God. God Bless him, his family and friends. This is just awful. I am sure we will hear something from the Aiken camp sometime this evening. Even though a Democrat, this is still horrible.

From the CDC:

"Each year, one in every three adults age 65 and older falls. Falls can cause moderate to severe injuries, such as hip fractures and head traumas, and can increase the risk of early death. Fortunately, falls are a public health problem that is largely preventable. How big is the problem? One out of three older adults (those aged 65 or older) falls each year but less than half talk to their healthcare providers about it. Among older adults, falls are the leading cause of both fatal and nonfatal injuries."

Aiken’s office released this statement:

“I don’t know how I’m going be able to continue this campaign without Crisco.”
