Following his censure by the House, Rep. Charlie Rangel is suddenly noting his age when talking about his future. The Democrat told the New York Daily News, “I do realize that I’m 80 years old,” when asked whether he’ll run for a 22nd term.
Over the weekend, Rangel tweeted a link to the story, in which he floated some potential candidates for his Harlem seat in the 15th district. From the Daily News:
“Assemblyman Keith Wright is ‘a great guy with a lot of experience,’ and state Sen. Adriano Espaillat ‘really has a proven record,’ he said. ‘And I’m watching this new fella coming in, [state Sen. Robert Rodriguez].’”
United We Dream protesters carry a mock coffin to the office of Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, in the Dirksen Senate Office Building on Monday, July 21, 2014, to hold one of their "funeral services for the Republican Party" due to GOP positions on immigration. The immigration reform group visited several other Senate Republican offices to hold similar funeral services.
