On the other side of the same primary, to be held June 24, Sen. Adriano Espaillat (D-Washington Heights) announced endorsement from Senate Independent Democratic Conference leader Jeffrey Klein (D-Bronx) and Assemb. Mark Gjonaj (D-Bronx).

Is Rangel, committed to one last term, headed for defeat? Not according to what the Congressman has been telling friends.
