"American Idol" alum Clay Aiken appears to have won the May 6 North Carolina Democratic primary after his opponent, Keith Crisco, suddenly died Monday.

According to local reports, Crisco suffered a fall in his home in Asheboro, NC, and was reported dead at the scene. He was 71 years old.

The race for North Carolina's 2nd Congressional District had been too close to call since May 6. Aiken had led by only 369 votes at the end of early tallies.

The counties within the district had been canvassing for official vote counts within the past week, and still needed to count provisional ballots. Results were expected to be released Tuesday.

More to come…
