HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - Pennsylvania’s Democratic Party chairman says he’s stepping down, a year after a fight with Gov. Tom Wolf over the job.

In a video uploaded to YouTube on Tuesday, Jim Burn said he’ll submit a resignation letter at the party’s Sept. 12 meeting in Gettysburg.

Burn says he wants to move past persistent questions and concerns over his decisions last year, although he didn’t describe those decisions in the video.

Wolf had just won the party’s gubernatorial primary when he sought to replace Burn with Katie McGinty.

But Burn refused to step down and was re-elected by committee members to serve another four-year term. Shortly afterward, Wolf started a political action committee headed by McGinty called Campaign for a Fresh Start that fulfilled many activities the party normally undertakes during an election year.
