Moran pushes bid to become party chair

Former state delegate and 2009 gubernatorial candidate Brian Moran is pushing a bid to become the chair of the Democratic Party of Virginia.

In an e-mail sent out by Moran Monday morning, Moran said he is “ready to take on the challenge” of leading the state party, which is in freefall since winning control of the State Senate in 2007 and winning Virginia for Barack Obama in a 2008 election cycle that also saw Mark Warner win election to the U.S. Senate in a landslide and saw Democrats take six of the state’s 11 congressional seats.

Republican Bob McDonnell led a sweep of the 2009 statewide races as the GOP also pushed to a 61-39 majority in the House of Delegates. The 2010 cycle saw three Democratic incumbents lose their congressional seats with a fourth race still too close to call.
