UPPER MARLBORO, Md. (AP) — The chief prosecutor in Prince George’s County says he has decided against a run for Congress.

State’s Attorney Glenn Ivey announced last month that he was forming an exploratory committee for a possible run against U.S. Rep. Donna Edwards in the Democratic primary this year.

But on Tuesday, Ivey said he would not seek the seat in the 4th Congressional District.

Ivey said he had a responsibility to his constituents, and decided it would be best to serve the community in other ways.

Edwards was first elected in 2008. The district includes parts of Prince George’s and Montgomery counties.
