Charles Rangel bests Adriano Espaillat

*As of the time of the post 5:34 AM EST Adriano Espaillat has yet to concede.

[SOURCE: NY DAILY NEWS] Rep. Charles Rangel, the Lion of Harlem, roared one last time Tuesday night, beating back a fierce challenge from state Sen. Adriano Espaillat to win a 23rd and final term in Congress.

With 100% of the precincts reporting, Rangel had 47.4% of the vote to 43.6% for Espaillat, a margin of about 1,800 ballots in the 13th District Democratic Primary.
