Less than 24 hours after his competitor’s  sudden death, former “American Idol” runner-up Clay Aiken got a Democratic congressional primary victory in North Carolina on Tuesday.

His 390-vote margin was large enough to avoid any objections .

Aiken, 35, a singer, actor and former special education teacher, faces an uphill battle against an entrenched Republican incumbent, U.S. Rep. Renee Ellmers, in the 2nd Congressional District, which is in primarily south and west of Raleigh. The district was redrawn by the state Legislature’s Republican majority as a GOP stronghold.

After election day, all the absentee and provisional ballots were counted, the state Board of Elections declared Aiken as the primary winner Tuesday. He received total of  11,678 votes, or 40.86%, to Crisco’s 11,288 votes, or 39.49%. A third candidate, Toni Morris, received the remaining 19.65%.
