Charlie Rangel’s Fate on the Line

Chris Maddaloni/CQ Roll Call
Voters will decide the fate of veteran Rep. Charlie Rangel in today’s primary.

On the Democratic side, a judge’s Friday ruling means that there will, indeed, be a runoff between attorney Preston Brittain and economist and former Georgia state Rep. Gloria Bromell Tinubu. The South Carolina State Election Commission had originally said there would not be a runoff.

Brittain, who has establishment support and is seen as the only viable general election candidate, would appear to be the underdog. Bromell Tinubu topped him by a comfortable margin in the primary. But it is South Carolina, where anything can happen in politics.
