New York.– Congressman Charles Rangel said Saturday he's not overconfident he'll prevail over his closet rival, but insisted that voters would stick with a veteran lawmaker, AP reported.

According to the news report, Rangel dismissed criticism that he was too old to continue serving in Washington. "If you had a racehorse that won 43 races, brings in the money, but the horse is old and experienced and knows the track, what would you do?" Rangel, 84, asked reporters at a Washington Heights storefront church. 

AP also reported that Espaillat, who if elected would be the first member of Congress born in the Dominican Republic, held a campaign rally in upper Manhattan Saturday accompanied by local elected officials, dozens of campaign workers and about 100 supporters.

“After a humiliating censure by Congress four years ago for failing to pay taxes and other ethical lapses, Representative Charles Rangel has steadily lost power in Washington. After nearly 44 years in office, it is now time for him to yield to the next generation.”

John Samuelsen, president of the Transit Workers Union Local 100, said: “Everybody is tired of Rangel. We need a champion that will stand up for us. That’s not Charlie Rangel.” The union has said Rangel has not done enough to bring federal money to the district to fund transit worker jobs.
