District 11

The 11th district is located entirely in New York City and includes all of Staten Island and parts of southern Brooklyn. The incumbent is Republican Michael Grimm, who has represented the district since 2011. He was re-elected in 2014 with 53% of the vote. The district has a PVI of R+2.

Grimm has been charged with a 20-count indictment by federal authorities for fraud, federal tax evasion, and perjury.[1] He will stand trial on these charges in December 2014.[2] If he is convicted, he has pledged to resign and a special election will be held.[3]

Democrat Michael McMahon, who represented the district from 2011 to 2013, may run.[4]

District 13

The 13th district is located entirely in New York City and includes Upper Manhattan and a small portion of the western Bronx. The incumbent is Democrat Charles B. Rangel, who has represented the district since 2013, and previously represented the 15th district from 1993 to 2013, the 16th district from 1983 to 1993, the 19th district from 1973 to 1983 and the 18th district from 1971 to 1973. He was re-elected in 2014 with 87% of the vote and the district has a PVI of D+42.

Rangel said during the 2014 election and confirmed after his victory that he would not run for a 24th term in 2016.[5][6]

Rangel had faced strong primary challenges in previous elections and has said that he will be "involved" in picking his successor. Adriano Espaillat, a member of the New York Senate who challenged Rangel in 2012 and 2014, could run again. Other potential Democratic candidates include State Senator Bill Perkins, State Assemblyman Keith L. T. Wright, former Governor of New York David Paterson, pastor and 2014 candidate Mike Walrond, New York City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito, City Councilwoman Inez Dickens, former State Assemblyman, former City Councilman and candidate for the seat in 1996 and 2010 Adam Clayton Powell IV, the son of Adam Clayton Powell Jr., whom Rangel defeated in the primary in 1970.[7]
