The last-minute robocall underscores the fact that Rangel is facing in the toughest bid for re-election in his 40-year political career.
On the one-minute call, which is going out Monday night to homes in Rangel's New York City district, Clinton touts Rangel's legislative achievements and the work he's done with the congressman.
"We worked together to create jobs, to turn a persistent deficit into a surplus, and he authored the historic Empowerment Zone legislation," Clinton says.

"And of course when I left office, Charlie helped me find an office in Harlem for my foundation's work," the former president adds.
Rangel has come under fire for alleged financial wrongdoing and harming the credibility of Congress, according to the ethics complaint. He has vowed to fight the charges and holds a significant cash advantage over his Democratic opponents.
