Last night at the Arlington Young Democrats meeting in Ballston, three former statewide candidates for the Democrats – Mike Signer, Brian Moran and Terry McAuliffe – gave GOTV (“get out the vote”) pep talks less than 2 weeks before mid-term elections (and prior to the dozens of AYD’s taking to the phone banks). The appearance together by Signer, Moran and McAuliffe also was noteworthy in that all three had been mentioned as contenders to succeed Dick Cranwell as chair of the Democratic Party of Virginia. With the quasi-“unity rally” last night, it now appears that Mark Warner’s pick for DPVA chair, Brian Moran, will not be seriously opposed for the position. We’ll see. Anyway, here’s some video from last night, in order of appearance. Introducing the speakers is AYDs president Gordon Simonett. Enjoy.
P.S. I’d also say that it’s looking more likely Brian Moran will not be a statewide candidate in 2013.
