Rep. Rangel Affirms Support for Obama at NY Debate

Friday, 27 Aug 2010 06:59 AM

 

New York Congressman Charlie Rangel wants voters to know he's a big supporter of President Barack Obama.

In a televised debate with Democratic primary rivals Thursday, Rangel went out of his way to praise Obama, saying the country has never had a more exciting president.

A House ethics panel has charged Rangel with 13 ethics violations, and Obama has suggested the 40-year veteran might want to consider ending his career. Rangel has responded testily to the president's suggestion in previous forums.

But at the latest, Rangel said he looked forward to continue working with Obama, whom he called a great president.

Five challengers are hoping to defeat Rangel in the state's Sept. 14 primary. There was general agreement among the candidates on most issues discussed during the debate.
