RICHMOND (WRIC) - The Democratic Party of Virginia has elected Richmond Mayor Dwight Jones as their next chair.
Party members voted Jones to the position Saturday. Jones was the only candidate for the position.

Jones was elected to the position in spite of some opposition within the party over his lack of support for gay marriage equality.
