Aiken’s bid for Congress still up in air

Some famous faces were a part of Tuesday's primaries. Former TV judge Joe Brown moves on to the fall election in his Tennessee race, but former “American Idol” runner-up Clay Aiken is still waiting to hear the results of his congressional primary bid in North Carolina.

Former “American Idol” runner-up Clay Aiken held a slight edge over textile entrepreneur Keith Crisco in a congressional primary election Wednesday, with officials working to count every last ballot before declaring a winner.

There were less than 400 votes separating the Democratic Party candidates in the Republican-leaning 2nd Congressional District.

Meanwhile, Brown could become the top prosecutor in Tennessee's largest county if the voters elect him over the incumbent in August.

Brown, a Democrat, and incumbent Amy Weirich, a Republican, ran unopposed in primary elections Tuesday.
