NEW YORK (AP) — Will the 23rd time be the charm? Longtime U.S. Rep. Charlie Rangel hopes so.

Rangel’s campaign to return once again to the House of Representatives is the most high-profile of the congressional primaries being voted on around the state on Tuesday. Other races include primaries for candidates looking to succeed retiring Democratic Reps. Carolyn McCarthy on Long Island and Bill Owens in upstate New York.

The 84-year-old Rangel is facing what could be his tightest race, the Democratic primary for the 13th Congressional District. His main opponent is state Sen. Adriano Espaillat, who is seeking to become the first Dominican-born member of Congress. In such a heavily Democratic city, the primary winner is widely expected to win the general election in November.
