Former Prince George's County prosecutor Glenn Ivey plans to run for the congressional seat held by Democratic Rep. Donna Edwards, according to a spokesman.

Ramon Korionoff, who was Ivey's spokesman as state's attorney, said Tuesday that Ivey will file paperwork within days for the 4th District seat.

The district includes much of Prince George's County, but it has been redrawn to include part of Anne Arundel County. During redistricting approved last week, part of Montgomery County was eliminated over Edwards' objections.

The 50-year-old Ivey is a lawyer in private practice following two terms as state's attorney. He considered a run for Congress in 2009 but backed off.

Also Tuesday, Anne Arundel County Council member G. James Benoit, a Democrat, said he is also considering a run.
