After a bruising campaign fight for a primary election that was still too close to call into the wee hours of the morning, Rep. Charles Rangel (D, New York) emerged victorious.

WATCH NOW! Pras & Charles Rangel Respond To Criticism He Should Retire From Congress

Reports the New York Daily News:

Rep. Charles Rangel, the Lion of Harlem, roared one last time Tuesday night, beating back a fierce challenge from state Sen. Adriano Espaillat to claim a 23rd and final term in Congress.

With 100% of the precincts reporting, Rangel had 47.4% of the vote to 43.6% for Espaillat, a margin of about 1,800 ballots in the 13th District Democratic Primary, unofficial returns showed.

The victory allows Rangel, 84, the face of Harlem politics for nearly a half century and at one time the most powerful elected black official in the country, to end his political career on his own terms.

He does not face a Republican challenger on the ballot in November, and is almost guaranteed to return to Congress.
