ST. PAUL, Minn. (WCCO) — After just two years in office, Minnesota Sen. John Harrington says he is stepping down.

According to the Pioneer Press, the former St. Paul police chief is set to publicly announce the decision today.

Harrington, who is affiliated with the Democratic-Farm Labor Party, told the paper his time in office has been frustrating.

He said one of the final straws was the voter ID question that passed the state legislature and will be on the ballot this fall.

Candidates who want to run for his District 67 seat can file through June 5.
