Rangel survives primary challenge

Charles Rangel survived a primary challenge by Adam Clayton Powell on Tuesday to move forward toward possible re-election in New York’s Harlem distract, despite Rangel being charged with over 15 ethics charges that forced him from several of his powerful committee posts … in a Democrat-controlled Senate.

Rangel, who almost always appears in protective clothing, is a well-known figure on the news media circuit as well as capital hill, but surprised many when he refused to step down following the ethics charges. Given the solid-blue status of his district, uncontested GOP challenger Michael Faulkner is not expected to make it much of a contest in November.
