    The crowded field of Democrats hoping to succeed Rep. Jim Moran, D-Va., in Congress got a little smaller Friday.

    Delegate Alfonso Lopez of Arlington announced he's ending his campaign.

    In a statement, Lopez said as the latest fundraising quarter came to an end, he realized he didn't have the resources necessary to continue.

    There are still 10 Democrats seeking the party's nomination. The primary is June 10.
