(AP) — Tennessee's Democratic Party Chairman Roy Herron says he won't seek a second term in the job.

Herron made the announcement in a statement on Saturday, saying he'll leave the job after two years.

Herron succeeded Chip Forrester, whose two terms were hampered by a long-running feud with elected Democrats like former Gov. Phil Bredesen.

Herron, a Dresden attorney, retired from the Legislature after a 25-year career in the state House and Senate in 2012. He made an ill-fated bid for an open congressional seat in 2010, losing to Republican Stephen Fincher by 20 percentage points.
