Daily News-Record

The Harrisonburg Democratic Committee’s executive board voted Monday night that the state party should select a chairman who supports marriage equality.

A debate on who should become state chairman has grown within the Democratic Party because Gov. Terry McAuliffe’s choice, Richmond Mayor Dwight Jones, has not declared support for same-sex marriage.

Jones is a Baptist minister.

The state party is scheduled to vote on a chairman Saturday.
