Rangel confident he’ll prevail in Tuesday’s primary
Question of the Day
WASHINGTON (AP) — Rep. Charles B. Rangel, New York Democrat, said Tuesday he is confident that he’ll prevail in today’s primary election. He predicted that voters ultimately will re-elect him to a 22nd term from the Harlem congressional district he has represented for decades.
Mr. Rangel, who’s 82, told CNN that he’s “the only one that has the experience” and knowledge to work toward “the solution for jobs, health and education” issues that affect his district.
Still, the longtime congressman is expected to face challenges, including changed demographics in his redrawn district, shadows from an ethics controversy and strong primary opponents.
Mr. Rangel has also had some health problems. But he said Tuesday, “There’s nothing wrong with me today.”
He told CNN: “I got a clean bill of health. I’m fired up and ready to go.”
