(AP) - Delegate Brian Moran resigned Friday from his House seat and leadership post as head of the House Democratic Caucus to run for governor full time.

The 49-year-old Alexandria lawmaker is in a hotly contested three-way Democratic primary battle for the party's nomination in the 2009 governor's race.

Moran notified Gov. Tim Kaine on Friday of his intention to resign immediately from the House of Delegates seat he has held since 1996.

He announced his decision in a letter e-mailed to constituents Friday afternoon. He wrote in the letter that he would be campaigning full time for governor.

Moran wrote that his constituents deserve the full attention of their legislative representative.
