Clay Aiken Is ThisClose To Winning The North Carolina Primary
American Idol runner-up Clay Aiken may have clinched the win this time! Based on current reports the singer is ahead of his opponent Keith Crisco in the Democratic primary for a House of Representatives seat in North Carolina.
Former American Idol star Clay Aiken appears to have won the Democratic primary in North Carolina, but the election is so close that it’s still too early to call a winner.
Clay Aiken, who’s running for House of Representatives in the state’s 2nd district, is ahead of his competitor Keith Crisco with 369 votes, the tally from the Board of Elections shows.
While that lands the former singing star just above the threshold of the 40% that candidates must clear to avoid a runoff, it is not enough for him to declare victory, as provisional, absentee and military absentee ballots are still being tallied. The last votes will be counted Monday.
Think Clay can pull off the win, Instincters?
