Ivey planning primary challenge against Edwards

← return to City State

Glenn F. Ivey, a former Prince George’s County state’s attorney, is preparing a run for Congress next year against incumbent Democratic Rep. Donna F. Edwards, his spokesman said Tuesday.

Mr. Ivey, a Democrat, could mount a primary challenge in Miss Edwards’ 4th District, his spokesman Ramon Korionoff told multiple news outlets.

“Glenn Ivey is moving full speed ahead,” Mr. Korionoff said in an email, according to the Baltimore Sun. “He’s laying the foundation for a congressional run and he looks forward to serving the people of the newly formed 4th District.”

Mr. Ivey spent eight years as state’s attorney before leaving office in January. Miss Edwards was elected to the House in 2008 and is in her second full term in office.

Her district was drastically changed last week when the General Assembly approved a new congressional map, altering her district to include portions of Prince George’s and Anne Arundel counties rather than its former place in Prince George’s and Montgomery counties.

Miss Edwards criticized the plan and even proposed her own map before the changes were approved.
