Powell Open Campaign Committee to Take on Rangel

Demands to remove Rep. Charlie Rangel (D) as Ways and Means chairman have died down, but that hasn’t kept several candidates from filing the paperwork to take him on in 2010.

No doubt emboldened by the negative headlines that have dogged the 20-term Harlem Congressman, three candidates have now created campaign accounts to run against him in either the primary or general election.

The most recent addition is state Assemblyman Adam Clayton Powell IV (D), son of civil rights leader and former Congressman Adam Clayton Powell Jr., whose paperwork for a new campaign account was published on the Federal Election Commission Web site Tuesday.
