Could Congressman Rangel end up representing the Bronx? — The NY World

Ever since the 2010 Census exposed ethnic shifts in New York State, the legislature been working to redraw the political map.  Columbia J-School’s New York World reports that a number of ethnic organizations in Northern Manhattan are working on plans that might lead to radical changes for Rep. Charles Rangel’s 15th district.

Two of the proposals would extend the district seat Rangel has held for 30 years into the Bronx and Westchester counties.

The 81-year-old Harlem congressman said he was not opposed to representing parts of the Bronx, but hoped a majority of his seats would remain in New York County.
