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.


  1. Good idea, one of the most crime ridden counties in MD. Lets go ahead and give him a promotion.

  2. Doubtful that the entire county is “crime-ridden” but, by all means, please continue to spread the vicious misconception that a given crime rate within a small, densely-populated area is attributable to the whole entire [largely suburban and rural] county. I’m sure the homeowners appreciate the perpetuation of disfavored stereotypes decreasing their home values.
    Further…I’m left confused as to how a State’s Attorney is held responsible for crimes that have occurred. Isn’t his role to prosecute? Or was he supposed to police the streets, as well?
