With 99 percent of precincts reporting, Rangel was leading 47 percent to 44 percent, according to local television station NY1, which called Rangel the winner. Rangel, 84, has said the next term will be his final one in Congress. He was first elected in 1971 and is the third longest-serving member of the legislative body.

Rangel voted NO ... on the stupid trillion dollar war in Iraq

"Rangel fought for his life on a frozen mountain in North Korea with the 503rd Field Artillery Battalion. He caught shrapnel in his foot on Nov. 30, 1950, and was awarded the Bronze Star and the Purple Heart,"

Unlike the pro-war, chicken-hawk, draft-dodging cowards Limbaugh, Cheney, Bush, Boehner and Romney

Good for him. Now get out of Congress. He is so far removed from common people that he can't even pay taxes.

Charley Rangel is a thieving, old fool; but he DOES bring home the pork for his district! I would vote him over ANY Republican.

Rangel sucks, but I guess his constituents decided he was their best bet to bring home the bacon. Two years from now who knows what will happen.
