Charlie Rangel is burning cash as the June 26 primary approaches. His main challenger is State Senator Adriano Espiallat.
Not surprising but here it is… Roll Call: “The Rangel campaign spent $344,000 during the pre-primary period but raised $297,000 … That left the 82-year-old Congressman with just $179,000 in cash on hand as of June 6… State Sen. Adriano Espaillat … pulled in $272,000 and spent $198,000 during the same period. On June 6, he had $73,000 in cash on hand.”
Several members of the CBC including Reps. Bennie Thompson, Hank Johnson, Karen Bass, Yvette Clarke, Barbara Lee, Cedric Richmond and Marcia Fudge have donated to money to Rangel’s campaign as well as New York office holders Jerry Nadler, Joe Crowley and Kirsten Gillibrand.
