Cranwell Will Step Aside Next Year

Anita Kumar

C. Richard Cranwell, chairman of the Virginia Democratic Party, plans to step aside next year as party leader.

Cranwell, a 30-year fixture in the House of Delegates, said he pledged to former governor Mark R. Warner and current governor Timothy M. Kaine, that he would serve until his term expires in 2009. But he will not run again.

Cranwell was elected in 2005.

His Republican counterpart, John H. Hager, faces stiff competition for chairman of the Republican Party of Virginia. Del. Jeffrey M. Frederick (Prince William) is posing a serious challenge to Hager, who is seeking reelection to the job he has held since August.
