The Democratic Party of Virginia elected today a new Chair, Susan Swecker of Richmond and Monterey. Swecker was confirmed on Friday evening and will immediately assume all duties of the position. She will be formally sworn in at the party's next Central Committee meeting in June.
"From creating jobs to protecting the rights of all Virginians, Democrats have made incredible progress for the Commonwealth," said DPVA Chair Susan Swecker. "Virginia will be in the spotlight nationally this year as we work to grow our numbers in the House of Delegates and take back the majority in the State Senate. And, of course, in 2016 we will campaign tirelessly to ensure that a Democrat continues to hold the Presidency. We have incredible opportunities ahead of us and I'm eager to continue moving Virginia forward."
