New York Congressman Charlie Rangel says he's "in it to win it" (again).

The Washington Post reports:

Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-N.Y.) announced Thursday that he will seek a 23rd term in Congress in 2014, putting to rest retirement rumors.

In an op-ed for the New York Daily News, the 83-year-old says he is "fired up" to run again and continue to represent his Harlem-based district.

"I may not be a perfect human being, but I believe I am best equipped — by my experience, my knowledge of Washington, my seniority, my passion for serving the people of our district — to help the President achieve his agenda over the next two years," Rangel writes. "I still have unfinished business. Charlie Rangel is still fired up. That is why I am running for my 23rd term in office.
