Ivey won't challenge Edwards; will leave public office
Prince George's County State's Attorney Glenn F. Ivey announced Tuesday that he would not challenge Rep. Donna F. Edwards (D-Md.) and instead will go into the private sector next year after his term as chief prosecutor ends," writes The Post's Jonathan Mummolo. "Ivey (D) cited "personal reasons" and a desire for a "vacation" from elective politics but shied from specifics. "I didn't have the appetite for another political campaign right now," he said. Responding to questions from reporters, he ruled out his health, his family's wishes or any potential scandal as reasons for his decision." Before he voiced ambition for a congressional bid, Ivey was long seen as a logical contender to replace term-limited County Executive Jack B. Johnson (D).
