Bob Hennelly and Azi Paybarah, both WNYC reporters, talk about the upcoming primary votes in New York and who's on the ballot, which was released yesterday. Plus, what to make of Rangel's rant.
To fill in a little of the info the guests seemed unsure of about Mark Levine: he's *one* of the founders of the Barack Obama Democratic Club & also of the Neighborhood Trust Federal Credit Union (& was one of the people who run it). He also ran for Stan Michels' City Council seat (Robert Jackson won).
What an EGO! Charlie Rangel has lost it and doesn't even seem to realize it's not about him but rather about the law and the people he represents. Supporters or not, anyone that blind and insensitive should be gone.
Do you know which incumbent Democratic senator will be listed first on Nov. 2? Schumer (full term) or Gillibrand (2-year). May effect the election and certainly work against Republican opponents.
