BOISE, Idaho (AP) - Idaho Democratic Party Chairman Larry Kenck will resign from his position overseeing the state’s minority political party as of May 29.

Party officials announced Tuesday that Kenck is stepping down because of medical issues. Kenck submitted his resignation letter last week, writing that he needed to deal with health issues and that the party needs an active Chairman who isn’t focused on health concerns.

Vice chair Jeanne Buell will serve as chair until mid-June, where the state Democratic central committee will vote for a new chairman. The new chair will serve Kenck’s remaining term, which ends in 2017.

Kenck has served as the party’s chair since 2013.
