(Raleigh, NC) -- "American Idol" star Clay Aiken tells NBC's "Today" that being a celebrity made his race for Congress in North Carolina difficult. He was holding on to a lead even before the sudden death of opponent and fellow Democrat Keith Crisco. The election results will be reviewed by the election board in North Carolina this Thursday. After the review, Aiken is expected to be named the official winner.
