NEW YORK (AP) - U.S. Congressman Charles Rangel is celebrating in his New York City district, despite the results of Tuesday's primary still being too close to call.

The 84-year-old, 22-term lawmaker took to the stage declaring victory.

With 99 percent of the vote in, Rangel leads state Sen. Adriano Espaillat (ah-dree-AH'-noh ehs-peye-YAHT') by fewer than 2,000 votes, but elections officials have not said how many paper ballots are outstanding.
