New York primary election results 2010: Rangel holds on, Paladino crushes Rick Lazio

AP reports that Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand has easily won the Democratic Senate primary in New York. In the Republican gubernatorial primary, Carl Paladino crushed former Rep. Rick Lazio. Rep. Charlie Rangel defeated Adam Clayton Powell IV in a primary for his seat. But he still faces a House ethics trial in the fall.

The Rangel victory was of particular interest. As Paul Kane reported:

Despite a crowded field, Rangel won a majority of votes - 51 percent, with 95 percent of precincts reporting. His most aggressive challenger, state Assemblyman Adam Clayton Powell IV, had 24 percent. Community activist Joyce Johnson, who received the surprise backing of the New York Times editorial board, had 12 percent.

Now in his 20th term, Rangel is a near-certain victor in the general election. The heavily liberal district has been represented by just two congressmen since 1945, both historic African American political figures: Rangel, since 1970; and the man he defeated, Powell's father, Adam Clayton Powell Jr.
