Representative Charlie Rangel is heading into a rematch of the 2012 race that nearly cost him his 22nd term in office, so he needs all the help he can get. But as the June 24 primary draws closer, Rangel is wondering why he can't even get a meeting with Mayor de Blasio and President Obama to ask for their endorsement. He suspects de Blasio, who ran his 1994 campaign, might be miffed because he backed Bill Thompson for mayor. Rangel also endorsed Hillary Clinton in 2008, but Obama assured him he isn't holding a grudge, so that can't be it. Maybe Rangel should think a little harder about that time he was censured by the House for ethics violations, which Obama called "very troubling."
