WASHINGTON (AP) -- The former head of the Democratic National Committee says she considered initiating efforts to replace Hillary Clinton as the party's presidential nominee with then-Vice President Joe Biden.

Donna Brazile makes the revelation in a memoir being released Tuesday that has renewed deep divisions within the Democratic Party.

In an excerpt published earlier, Brazile says she believed a joint fundraising agreement signed between Clinton and the DNC "looked unethical" and that she felt Clinton had too much influence on the party during a competitive Democratic primary with rival Bernie Sanders.

Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez tried to calm the rival factions with a statement Saturday on new procedures intended to make the next primary more fair.
