    Singer and former American Idol contestant Clay Aiken is running for Congressional office in North Carolina and he just got a huge leg up on his opponent, but in the saddest way. Keith Crisco, 71 and Aiken's opponent for a Democratic U.S. House seat, has died.

    Crisco was found dead at his Asheboro home on Monday, May 12. He fell and died as a result of injuries sustained in that fall, according to reports.

    Aiken was said to be slightly ahead of his opponent in the polls.

    R.I.P. to Mr. Crisco. How tragic.

    Do you think Clay Aiken will succeed if elected to office, despite this tragedy?
