The New York City Board of Elections has completed its hand count of several thousand provisional and absentee ballots from the thirteenth Congressional District Democratic primary race, and Charlie Rangel appears to have maintained his slim lead over challenger Adriano Espaillat. The final tally has Rangel at 18,940 votes — 990 more than Espaillat, who ended up with 17,950. Still, Rangel's camp has not yet declared victory because the "incompetent" board has been prevented from certifying the results without a judge's permission. So, there's still a chance we could get our very own mini–Bush v. Gore.
