Candidates are lining up to challenge veteran Harlem Rep. Charles Rangel for his congressional seat.

Rangel has held the seat for more than four decades, and is running for his 22nd term in office.

He represents New York's 13th congressional district, formerly the 15th district.

Like all congressional districts in the state, it was redrawn this year.

We asked all the candidates running in the district's Democratic primary to join us on the program to discuss the issues.

Rangel and Adriano Espillat declined our invitation.

But three other candidates joined us.

They are Clyde Williams, a former adviser to President Clinton, Joyce Johnson, a Harlem community activist, and Craig Schley, also a community activist and former intern to Charles Rangel.
