Cranwell Still Undecided on Statewide Bid
C.. Richard Cranwell, the chairman of the Virginia Democratic Party, said today he's still not sure whether he will step down so he can seek his party's nomination for lieutenant governor.
For months, Cranwell has been mentioned as a potential statewide candidate next year, but he had been telling people he would not make an announcement until after the election.
The election has come and gone, but Cranwell now says he will "probably" reach a decision before Thanksgiving.
"I haven't made up my mind yet," Cranwell said.
Since Cranwell took over as chairman, Democrats won the 2005 governor's race, two U.S. Senate seats, three House seats, control of the state senate and President-Elect Barack Obama became the first Democratic nominee in 44 years to carry the state.
Not a bad talking point to take to Democratic primary voters.
