Ivey backs Baker for Pr. George's executive

Washington Post Editors

Prince George's County State's Attorney Glenn F. Ivey made it official Tuesday: He is supporting longtime friend and political ally Rushern L. Baker in his campaign for county executive.

Ivey (D), who is nearing the end of his second term as the county's top prosecutor and is not running for any elective office, also endorsed Baker four years ago, when Baker lost to County Executive Jack B. Johnson (D). The incumbent county executive is nearing the end of his second term and cannot run again because of term limits.

Baker (D) has a host of endorsements from county elected officials. In addition to Ivey, he is endorsed by five of the county's eight state senators.
