One of the strongest knocks against Rep. Charlie Rangel that I hear when I go to his district is that the twenty-term congressman has been in office for too long.
Each of his four Democratic opponents, to varying degrees, hit on this theme. Which may help explain why the congressman is having a "Team Rangel Next Generation Crew" event two days before his 80th birthday party.
Details for the younger-oriented event after the jump:
