Republicans accuse Democratic ethics chairwoman of stalling Rangel and Waters trials

Washington (CNN) - In a highly unusual move, every Republican member of the House ethics committee issued a statement Tuesday blasting the Democratic chairwoman for "stalling" on making a decision on whether to hold trials for New York Democratic Rep. Charlie Rangel and California Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters before November's election.

"Members of the Committee have repeatedly expressed their willingness and desire to move forward with public trials of these matters and have repeatedly made themselves available to the Chairwoman for October settings. In past Congresses, Committee Members have returned to Washington during a recess in an effort to conclude pressing Ethics matters," said the statement, signed by ranking Republican Jo Bonner and the four other GOP lawmakers on the committee.

Rangel fends off five primary opponents

 New York Rep. Charlie Rangel secured the Democratic Party’s nomination on Tuesday night.
New York Rep. Charlie Rangel secured the Democratic Party’s nomination on Tuesday night.

New York (CNN) - He's served in Congress for almost 40 years, but Tuesday's primary in New York was unlike any other for Democratic Congressman Charles Rangel.

The 80-year-old Rangel, facing five challengers and 13 ethics allegations in the House, came out on top in the Democratic primary for New York's 15th district, CNN has projected.

On the eve of the primary, robocalls using former President Bill Clinton's voice went out telling voters: "We need Charlie to go back to Washington, to work with President Obama to say, 'Yes.' "

Despite the ethics allegations, support still poured in for Rangel because "he's been a great congressman for Harlem," said Democratic strategist and CNN contributor Paul Begala.

Analysis: Rangel a safe bet or on the line?

 Is Democratic Rep. Charlie Rangel in for the fight of his life?
Is Democratic Rep. Charlie Rangel in for the fight of his life?

Is Democratic Rep. Charlie Rangel in for the fight of his life? It depends who you ask.

The 20-term New York incumbent, plagued by ethics charges, faces five challengers in the Democratic primary.

Redstate.com editor Erick Erickson told CNN that while the national media might paint the race as a tight one, the local press thinks Rangel is a safe bet.

"I've talked to a number of people who live in NY-15, his district, and no one there thinks he's going to be thrown out," he said. "Everyone it seems like in Washington and people I've talked to outside of his district think he's probably in for a fight for his life, but I know very few people who live in or around his district who think that."
