Ivey Won't Endorse
Prince George's State's Attorney Glenn Ivey has decided to stay on the sidelines in the upcoming Democratic primary for governor and U.S. Senate.
Instead of endorsing a candidate, Ivey said recently that he will work to make sure the Democratic Party is in the "best position to win the general....I don't want to have a divisive primary," Ivey said.
Ivey was once considered a possible running mate for either Democrat, and was often linked with O'Malley, in particular. Another Prince George's Democrat, Del. Anthony Brown, is on the ticket with O'Malley. Ivey also considered a bid for state attorney general, but ruled it out in November.
When asked his position on the Senate race, Ivey said he just wants to make sure the Democrats hold on to Sen. Paul Sarbanes' seat. Ivey's wife, Jolene, is actively involved in Rep. Ben Cardin's campaign. She is also running her own campaign for state delegate.
"We just need to make sure the apparatus is in place so we can get our candidates in office," Ivey said.
