Moran's Late Night

Tim Craig

Del. Brian J. Moran (D-Alexandria), a candidate for governor in 2009, kept Virginia delegates to the Democratic National Convention happy at a party late last night at the delegation's hotel bar.

More than 100 Virginia Democrats attended the party, billed as a "Late Night With Brian Moran," including U.S. Rep. Robert C. "Bobby" Scott and Moran's brother, Rep. James P. Moran. U.S. Senate Democratic candidate Mark R. Warner also made an appearance, hours after he delivered the convention keynote address.

"It was a nice opportunity to get everyone together after Mark's speech and celebrate Mark's speech," Brian Moran said.

Brian Moran's likely opponent for the Democratic nomination next year, Sen. R. Creigh Deeds (Bath) is also in Denver this week. Deeds has embraced a less visible strategy. He has not scheduled a party, but is meeting with delegates in small groups in effort to win them over for next year, said Peter Jackson, Deed's spokesman.

"We've just been going out and meeting people one on one, and attending parties with national donors and various labor leaders," Jackson said.

When told of Jackson's comments, Moran said, "I'm much more comfortable with my fellow Virginians."
