+
{{Dem letter on Syria|Name=Rangel}}
+
 
+
Rangel on September 2, 2013, called the situation for the United States on Syria “embarrassing,” saying the America should not put its troops in harm’s way because of a “red line” drawn by the president.<ref name="message">[http://www.politico.com/story/2013/09/syria-crisis-update-charles-rangel-96162.html?ml=la ''Politico,'' "Charles Rangel says no to troops in Syria," accessed September 2, 2013]</ref>
+
 
+
''MSNBC'' host Mara Schiavocampo asked Rangel, “In terms of that red line, the president was clear about that a year ago. Are you concerned if there is not action once that line has been crossed, that it will send a message to the world about United States’ influence and their strength in the face of countries openly defying them?”<ref name="message"/>
+
 
+
“I love [[Barack Obama|Obama]] and you’ll never find a truer Democrat than me,” Rangel responded, “but this whole idea of any president of the United States drawing lines saying that if any country does something that he considers wrong, that the nation is going to war, it’s unheard of, drawing a red line. So, of course, it’s embarrassing. I wish it didn’t happen. I guess Secretary [[John Kerry|[John] Kerry]] is even more embarrassed than me after making his emotional speech that this was urgent.”<ref name="message"/>
+
 
+
Rangel said he was glad the president realized the situation was not urgent, and he hopes the time for discussion the president is urging will have positive results.<ref name="message"/>
+
 
+
“During those discussions, I hope that other people in the international community would come forward and take this great decision off of the Congress, because we have to make it. Take it off of the Congress and provide some solution where we are not putting our kids in harm’s way to solve an international problem that we feel bounded, not by law, but because the president has drawn a red line,” Rangel said.<ref name="message"/>

====Comments about the tea party====
+
On August 2, 2013, Rangel compared tea party members to segregationists: "It is the same group we faced in the South with those white crackers and the dogs and the police. They didn’t care about how they looked." <ref>[http://livewire.talkingpointsmemo.com/entry/charlie-rangel-tea-party-is-same-group-of ''Talking Points Memo'', "Charlie Rangel: Tea Party Is ‘Same Group’ Of ‘White Crackers’ Who Fought Civil Rights," accessed August 6, 2013]</ref>
+
 
+
====Ethics violations====
+
In December 2010, Rangel received the first congressional censure by the House Ethics Committee in 27 years by a vote of 333-79. He was officially reprimanded for ethics violations that included: $500,000 of undisclosed assets and 17 years of unpaid property taxes in the Dominican Republic.<ref>[http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/12/02/AR2010120201626.html?sid=ST2010120201655 ''Washington Post'', "House censures Rep. Charles Rangel in 333-79 vote," December 3, 2010]</ref> On April 22, 2013 Rangel filed a lawsuit in federal court asking for the censure to be overturned. The lawsuit questioned whether or not proper procedure was used in Rangel's censure investigation.<ref>[http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/in-the-loop/post/rangel-lawsuit-airs-ethics-panel-laundry/2013/04/23/f49271d4-ac1a-11e2-b6fd-ba6f5f26d70e_blog.html?wprss=rss_politics&utm_source=feedly ''Washington Post'', "Rangel lawsuit airs ethics’ panel laundry," April 23, 2013]</ref>

+
===Campaign themes===
+
====2012====
+
Rangel listed several of his campaign themes on his website:<ref>[http://charlierangel.org/issues Campaign website "Issues"]</ref>
+
 
+
*Taxes-"I believe that if we are to strengthen our economy, we must create new, good-paying jobs. By extending enhanced expense limits for small businesses and keeping more generous depreciation rules in effect, the recovery legislation will help businesses invest in themselves, allowing them to grow and create new jobs. We also provide businesses with incentives to hire recently discharged, unemployed veterans and disconnected youth so we can reincorporate them into our communities and grow together.
+
 
+
*Working Families-Our first priority in confronting the economic crisis was making sure that we did not leave millions of unemployed workers without adequate income to pay rent or buy groceries. I was proud to stand with my Democratic Colleagues in passing the HIRE Act to provide a payroll tax credit for companies that hire employees who have been looking for work for 60 days or more.
+
 
+
*Affordable Housing-Affordable housing is a prioritized issue in New York's 13th Congressional District, which is mostly comprised of high-rise residential buildings. Throughout our community, tenants face an uphill battle with higher rents, fewer services, and negligence or harassment by landlords. Perhaps more importantly, the lack of affordable housing in the area presents a severe threat to our local economy. As such, I have fought to ensure that tenants and prospective New York City residents are provided with proper support needed to finance affordable housing, while strengthening the quality and accessibility of our housing market.
+
 
+
*Social Security and Medicare-I stand firmly with President Barack Obama in opposing any efforts to privatize these programs.  I reject the idea that the future of hard-working Americans should be subject to the volatility of financial markets as some Republicans have advocated.  We should not cut taxes for the wealthiest Americans at the expense of gutting the lifeline that helps millions of Americans to survive.  I promise to continue opposing any budget proposals that undermine Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid.
+
 
+
*Education-I strongly believe that we must give every possible amount of support to our students, teachers and educators so that future generations of Americans will have the ability to succeed in a global economy and face the challenges of tomorrow. 
+
 
+
*Immigration-Our immigration policy should be driven by what is in the best interest of this great country and the American worker. Orderly and controlled borders, combined with an effective immigration system designed to meet our needs are important pillars of a healthy and robust economy. We need to act swiftly on immigration legislation that will improve our American workforce.
+
 
+
*Civil Rights-As a founding member of the Congressional Black Caucus, ensuring equal opportunity and tolerance in our society is very important to me. I believe we should respect everybody regardless of race, gender, religion, nationality, and sexual orientation.
+
 
+
*HIV/AIDS-I will continue to fight for those afflicted with HIV/AIDS and will work tirelessly until the day we have a cure.
+
 
+
*Foreign Policy-I believe that as a nation we must maintain a foreign policy that ensures international security, promotes human rights and advances democratic principles worldwide.  As part of the global community, we must come together to tackle major challenges that affect all of us, such as: poverty, education, public health, pollution, environment, natural disasters and the global HIV/AIDS epidemic.
+
 
+
*Veterans-As a veteran of the Korean War, I understand the plight of our soldiers and am committed to ensuring that our veterans are provided the care and opportunity that they so desperately deserve and earned. I consider the G.I. bill following my service in the Korean War to be a turning point in my life. It was the G.I. Bill which transformed me from a high school dropout into a law school graduate. As such, I am committed to giving the brave servicemen and women of today the same opportunity I had to make a change. I firmly believe adequate health and medical care for our veterans are not privileges but sacred rights we must honor.
+
 
+
*Environment-Protecting the environment is more than merely preserving nature. It is a commitment we must make to promote the health and welfare of all people.  In our Manhattan Congressional District and across America, especially in urban communities like our own, the effects of poor air and water quality are of great concern and importance."
+
===Specific votes===
+
====Fiscal Cliff====
+
{{Support vote}}
+
Rangel voted for the fiscal cliff compromise bill, which made permanent most of the Bush tax cuts originally passed in 2001 and 2003 while also raising tax rates on the highest income levels.  He was 1 of 172 Democrats that voted in favor of the bill. The bill was passed in the House by a 257/167 vote on January 1, 2013.<ref>[http://clerk.house.gov/evs/2012/roll659.xml ''U.S. House'' "Roll Call Vote on the Fiscal Cliff" Accessed January 4, 2013.]</ref>

Rangel is set to run for [[U.S. Congress elections, 2014|re-election]] to the [[U.S. House elections, 2014|U.S. House]] in 2014. If he runs, he will seek the Democratic nomination in the primary election. {{Nov2014genelection}}

===2012===
+
::''See also: [[New York's 13th congressional district elections, 2012]]''
+
Rangel ran for re-election in 2012. Because of [[Redistricting in New York|redistricting]], Rangel's territory is the new 13th district.  The 2012 Democratic primary election presented Rangel's toughest challenge since he defeated the previous incumbent 42 years ago.<ref name="rc">[http://www.rollcall.com/issues/57_150/Charlie-Rangel-at-Risk-in-Rough-Race-215302-1.html?pos=hbtxt ''Roll Call'' "Charlie Rangel at Risk in Rough Race," June 13, 2012]</ref> Rangel was re-elected in November.<ref>[http://www.politico.com/2012-election/results/house/new-york/ ''Politico'' "2012 Election Map, New York"]</ref>

State Senator [[Adriano Espaillat]], former [[Bill Clinton]] staffer [[Clyde Williams]], former executive [[Joyce Johnson]], and former Rangel intern [[Craig Schley]] all challenged Rangel in the June 26 Democratic primary.<ref name="dn">[http://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/4-candidates-13th-hay-lehman-tv-debate-rangel-skips-article-1.1094502?localLinksEnabled=false ''New York Daily News'' "4 candidates for 13th C.D. make hay at Lehman TV debate - but Rangel skips it," June 13, 2012]</ref><ref name="ny1"/>
+
 
+
Analysts expected race to come into play, as demographic changes and [[Redistricting in New York|redistricting]] meant that the traditionally black district is now majority Hispanic.<ref name="npr">[http://www.npr.org/2012/06/06/154452671/harlem-icon-faces-perfect-storm-in-re-election-bid ''NPR'' "Harlem Icon Faces 'Perfect Storm' In Re-Election Bid," June 13, 2012]</ref> Rangel's foremost challenge came from Espaillat, who was born in the Dominican Republic.<ref name="npr"/> While considered a "black politician," Rangel also has Puerto Rican heritage.<ref name="rc"/><ref name="npr"/>
+
 
+
Two other main issues were Rangel's recent ethics violations and his extensive term in office. Rangel received censure from the U.S. House in 2010 for failing to report some income.<ref name="npr"/> And Rangel's challengers pointed out that the 82-year-old congressman has been in office for over half his life.<ref name="ny1">[http://www.ny1.com/content/top_stories/163137/sparks-fly-between-rangel--espillat-at-ich-congressional-debate ''NY1'' "Sparks Fly Between Rangel, Espillat At ICH Congressional Debate," June 14, 2012]</ref><ref name="npr"/> The incumbent also suffered health problems this past year that kept him out of Washington for significant chunks of time, raising questions about his ability to represent the district.<ref name="npr"/> Rangel, however, dismissed these objections: "If I can support the initiatives that we started, how can I possibly sit on the sidelines?"<ref name="rc"/>
+
 
+
====Ballot contest====
+
While Rangel declared victory on election night with a 6.6 percentage-point lead, his lead shrunk over the next few days as results continued to trickle in. [[Adriano Espaillat]] took back his concession and prepared to challenge the final count in court. After that final count was completed on July 7, Espaillat conceded the election for good on July 9, although he and others continue to question the Board of Elections' actions.<ref name="nyt9"/><ref name="pol10"/>
+
 
+
As of Thursday, June 28, 2012, 94% of precincts had reported, and Rangel's lead in the Democratic primary had shrunk from 6.6 percentage points on election night to 3 percentage points. Challenger [[Adriano Espaillat]] was just over 1,000 votes behind Rangel.<ref>[http://www.politico.com/blogs/charlie-mahtesian/2012/06/rangel-results-still-unsettled-127509.html ''Politico'' "Rangel results still unsettled," June 28, 2012]</ref>
+
 
+
As of July 2, Rangel's lead had shrunk to 802 votes.<ref>[http://articles.chicagotribune.com/2012-07-02/news/sns-rt-us-usa-campaign-newyorkbre861154-20120702_1_congressman-and-once-towering-figure-rangel-single-vote  ''Chicago Tribune'' "Rangel rival challenges primary results," July 2, 2012]</ref> By July 3, Espaillat had filed court documents calling for a recount and possibly a new election.<ref>[http://online.wsj.com/article/APf0dd99cbbedb49fbaf0a135a53ff08ab.html ''Wall Street Journal'' "Espaillat seeks recount or new NY primary election," July 3, 2012]</ref> The city Board of Elections had yet to finish counting all of the paper votes.<ref>[http://www.nydailynews.com/news/politics/adriano-espaillat-charlie-rangel-showdown-espaillat-lawyer-accuses-board-elections-stonewalling-ballot-challenge-article-1.1107456 ''New York Daily News'' "Adriano Espaillat vs. Charlie Rangel showdown: Espaillat's lawyer accuses Board of Elections of stonewalling in ballot challenge," July 3, 2012]</ref><br>
+
 
+
On Friday, July 6, ballot counts showed Rangel with about a 1,000-vote lead.<ref name="wsj6">[http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052702304550004577511252494272604.html ''Wall Street Journal'' "Rangel Adds To Vote Edge in New Count," July 6, 2012]</ref> Espaillat was scheduled to make a case in court on July 11,<ref name="rsl">[http://www.nytimes.com/2012/07/06/nyregion/rangel-maintains-narrow-lead-as-more-ballots-are-counted.html ''New York Times'' "Rangel’s Slim Lead Widens as Ballot Count Continues," July 5, 2012]</ref> saying that some ballots for him were incorrectly thrown out, or request a new election altogether.<ref name="wsj6"/> Espaillat also faced pressure to choose between pursuing the 13th district race or filing for re-election to his [[New York State Senate]] seat on July 12, since New York state law forbids politicians from running for two offices simultaneously.<ref name="wsj6"/>
+
 
+
On Saturday, July 7, the city Board of Elections finished counting all of the ballots, and Rangel beat Espaillat by 990 votes.<ref name="wsj7"/> The results were not yet official, as a judge delayed certification until Espaillat could make his legal case on July 11. Espaillat planned to argue that some voters were unfairly disenfranchised.<ref name="wsj7"/><ref name="rsl"/> In a press statement, Espaillat said: "A ballooned number of affidavit ballots and hundreds of calls of people that said they were turned away because they said they couldn’t find them in the books? ... No notification for a voter that there was an election. All these things amounted to a big red flag."<ref name="pol10"/>
+
 
+
On July 9, Espaillat conceded the race.<ref name="nyt9">[http://www.nytimes.com/2012/07/10/nyregion/adriano-espaillat-concedes-defeat-by-charles-rangel-will-drop-challenge.html ''New York Times'' "Rangel’s Opponent Gives Up And Will Halt Court Challenge," July 9, 2012]</ref> He opted not to make his case in court, saying "[W]e came up short — 2 percent... It’s virtually impossible for the results to be different."<ref name="nyt9"/> He and other still had doubts about the Board of Elections' handling of the primary,<ref name="pol10">[http://politicker.com/2012/07/adriano-espaillat-wont-be-giving-that-apology-to-the-board-of-elections/ ''Politicker'' "Adriano Espaillat Won’t Be Giving That Apology to The Board of Elections," July 10, 2012]</ref> but he is leaving further presses to advocacy groups.<ref name="nyt9"/>
+
 
+
====Debates====
+
=====June 14, 2012=====
+
On June 14, 2012, all five Democratic candidates met for a debate. Rangel and Espaillat traded some intense words, with Rangel questioning a petition drive for Espaillat that the state senator says he's not involved with. Espaillat parried by bringing up Rangel's own ethics issues. Williams urged the candidates to avoid personal attacks and focus on the issues. Schley commented that Rangel was "antiquated" and was past his political prime.<ref name="ny1"/>
+
 
+
====Super PAC involvement====
+
The [[Super PAC]] [[Campaign for Primary Accountability]] targeted Rangel for defeat in the primary.<ref name="rc"/>
