Rep. Charles Rangel (D-N.Y.) will announce his run for reelection this week, according to the New York Daily News.
“He’s decided,” a source told the paper. “He’s running.”
And observers say Rangel will again have to contend with the spot on his record left by his censure by the House Ethics Committee in 2010, as well as the perception that the 83-year-old, 22-term lawmaker has been in Congress for too long.
But he’s been working to expand his base in the 13th District and won’t be easy to unseat, supporters say.
Rangel is expected to announce his decision on Thursday.
