Charlie Rangel on slim victory: My opponent was more popular than I thought

(CNN) – Rep. Charlie Rangel, D-New York, who was first elected in 1971, claimed victory in what he says is his last race, looking like he'll survive a second straight narrow victory against the same opponent he faced two years ago when he barely kept his political career alive.

Rangel blamed the changing district for his slim margins of victory.

    Rangel only has 2 years left. Rangel won because the people of NY-13 likes his services. Otherwise, we may need term limits.
