New York state senator concedes tight primary race to Rangel

U.S. Representative Charles Rangel, who is running for a 23rd term in Congress, makes an early morning campaign stop outside a subway stop in upper Manhattan in New York CityBy Victoria Cavaliere NEW YORK (Reuters) – A New York state senator on Thursday formally conceded to longtime incumbent U.S. Representative Charles Rangel in a razor-close Democratic primary for their congressional district. Adriano Espaillat called Rangel to offer his congratulations on his re-election, his campaign said in a statement. Rangel, who has served in Congress for more than 40 years, had declared victory in Tuesday’s tightly contested race. With absentee ballots still being counted, Rangel, one of the country’s best-known black political leaders, held about an 1,800 vote lead over Espaillat, who was hoping to become the first Dominican-American member of Congress.
