Glenn Ivey announces run for Congress

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) -- Former Prince George's County State's Attorney Glenn Ivey has announced he will run for Congress.

Ivey, a Democrat, said Wednesday on his campaign website that he will run in the 4th Congressional District.

Democratic Rep. Donna Edwards now holds the seat. She announced on Tuesday she will run for Senate. Sen. Barbara Mikulski announced last week she won't seek re-election in 2016.

Ivey was elected Prince George's County state's attorney in 2002 and again in 2006.

The congressional district Ivey is running for includes parts of Prince George's and Anne Arundel counties. He is the first candidate to say he is running for the seat.

Ivey filed to run against Edwards in 2012, but he later withdrew from the race.
