Moran named DPVA chair

Brian Moran will succeed Dick Cranwell as chairman of the Democratic Party of Virginia.

Moran, a former state delegate and 2009 Democratic Party gubernatorial-nomination candidate, bested former Arlington County Democratic chair Peter Rousselot in voting by the party’s State Central Committee.

“I want to thank Peter Rousselot for running a great campaign and raising a lot of issues that are important to the success of our party in the future. I also want to thank Dick Cranwell for his outstanding record of service to our party and this Commonwealth, both as a member of the House of Delegates and as Chairman of the DPVA. I am humbled to be asked to follow such a distinguished and effective leader. While Iā€™m sure we will continue to benefit from his participation in our party for years to come, he will be sorely missed as DPVA chair,” Moran said.
