Where in the World is Cranwell?
C. Richard Cranwell, the chairman of the Virginia Democratic Party, said all fall he would make up his mind about whether he plans to run for statewide office next year shortly after the Nov. 4 election.
Well, the Washington Post took him at his word and called him a few days after the election. Cranwell said he still hadn't made up his mind, but should have a decision by Thanksgiving.
Thanksgiving is in two days. But Cranwell's phone has gone straight to voice mail for the past two days. And Democratic officials say he is out of town. There does not appear, however, to be any indications that Cranwell is putting together a campaign, officials say.
And while Cranwell takes his time in making up his mind - or announcing his decision - his potential rivals in the lieutenant governor's race continue to rack up endorsements.
Jody Wagner, a Democratic candidate for lieutenant governor, announced yesterday she has been endorsed by senators Ed Houck (D-Spotsylvania) and Janet Howell (D-Fairfax) as well as delegates Albert Eisenberg, (D-Arlington), Albert Pollard (D-Mollusk) and Kenneth Plum (D-Fairfax).
