2014 U.S. Senate Elections

Flag of New York.png
The 13th Congressional District of New York will hold an election for the U.S. House of Representatives on November 4, 2014.

New York's 13th Congressional District is a Democratic leaning district. In 2012, Democratic incumbent Charles Rangel received 75% of the vote in the general election, compared with the 5.2% obtained by Republican candidate Craig Schley.

The lack of a Republican challenger in 2014 made for a hotly contested Democratic primary on June 24, 2014. The top contenders for the Democratic nomination were incumbent Charles Rangel and state senator Adriano Espaillat. Although Espaillat had not conceded the race, the Associated Press declared Rangel's victory the following day.[4]

These two candidates previously faced off in 2012, when Rangel narrowly defeated Espaillat 43.9 to 41.3 percent. Although Rangel maintained a lead in the polls, he lost many valuable endorsements. Mayor Bill de Blasio declined to endorse either candidate, even though most mayors have set a precedent of endorsing the incumbent.[5] President Barack Obama would not endorse either candidate either, although Rangel actively sought the endorsement.[6]
