Clay Aiken (Probably) Wins Democratic Primary in NC Comments (0)


Clay Aiken has won the Democratic primary in North Carolina, which means he will go up against Republican incumbent Rep. Renee Ellmers. He eked out a win by as little as 2%.

UPDATE: New orgs still have not called the Aiken race as of today, May 7, 10:00AM, even though he was never behind in any of the counting of the ballots, 100% of all precincts are in and he's ahead by more than the 1% needed to ward off a recount. Also, as it stands, he has (barely) more than 40% of the vote, which would mean no run-off. Not sure why the AP and CNN haven't called this, although it's certainly very, very close. Less than 15% of the electorate turned out in NC, by the way.
