RALEIGH, N.C. - North Carolina Congressional candidate Keith Crisco died suddenly at his home on Monday, WNCN confirmed.
MOREAdditional Links A woman at his company, Asheboro Elastics Corp. in Asheboro, confirmed that he died at his home Monday around 1 p.m. She said employees at the company were being told what had happened.
Crisco had faced Clay Aiken in a tense battle for the Democratic nomination in the 2nd Congressional District.
Clearing the field of opponents?
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
He seemed to be a bit advanced in age. Poor man.
It appears the strain was more than he could bear.
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.
so how do the polls stack up now?
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.
