New Hampshire Democrat Ray Buckley has dropped out of the race for Democratic National Committee chair and is throwing his support behind Minnesota Congressman Keith Ellison.

Buckley's announcement comes a week before DNC members gather in Atlanta to choose a new leader. Former Labor Secretary Tom Perez and Ellison are seen as the main contenders.

Buckley announced his decision in a Saturday email to the media. He says Ellison shares his commitment to investing more resources in state parties.

Ellison says if he wins he'll ask Buckley to lead a "new and innovative 57 state strategy" targeting the states and U.S. territories. Buckley has led the New Hampshire Democratic Party since 2007, helping Democrats win and hold federal seats in 2014 and 2016 despite national Democratic losses.
