One of Rep. Charlie Rangel’s 2014 challengers is starting to raise money for his fledgling campaign.

Rev. Michael Walrond sent out a tweet yesterday directing his supporters to donate money through his campaign website.

Walrond is the pastor of Harlem’s First Corinthian Baptist Church and a top leader in Rev. Al Sharpton’s National Action Network.

On his website, Walrond does not mention Rangel by name, but says he’s running because “the 13th Congressional District of New York needs a leader who can see beyond our current challenges and who believes that, as a community, we are empowered to pursue unlimited possibilities.”

We reached out to Walrond’s campaign, but have not yet heard back.

It’s unclear how much cash Walrond will be able to raise. So far his twitter account has just 116 followers.

That said, Walrond’s presence in the race could end up hurting Rangel and helping State Sen. Adriano Espaillat, who came close to beating Rangel last year and is expected to challenge the 22-term congressman next year.

Update: Walrond’s campaign tells me the website is not “officially” up and running; it’s only a flash site that allows people to make donations.
