Crisco Announces Run For Congress

Keith Crisco, president and chairman of Asheboro Elastics Corp. (AEC), Asheboro, N.C., and a former North Carolina secretary of commerce serving under former Governor Beverly Perdue, is running for the U.S. Congress. Crisco, a Democrat, is challenging Republican incumbent Renee Ellmers of Dunn, N.C., for her seat in North Carolina’s Second Congressional District. Both candidates must first win their respective 2014 Congressional primaries, which will be held May 6.

“I am running for North Carolina’s 2nd Congressional District because I believe we need to return to sensitive bipartisan policies, reduce sky-high unemployment and improve educational opportunities for our children,” Crisco said.

AEC, founded in 1986, employs more than 160 people, has manufacturing plants in Asheboro, El Salvador and Honduras, and has annual sales of more than $18 million.
