State Senator Tony Avella is out of the race for Queens borough president.

Avella released a statement Wednesday saying he plans to focus on what he calls unfinished business in Albany, hoping to obtain a leadership role in the state capitol.

The state senator's announcement leaves former City Councilwoman Melinda Katz and Councilman Peter Vallone Jr. in the Democratic primary for Queens borough president.

A spokesman for Avella said he will not endorse either candidate.
