    Prince George's County State's Attorney Glenn Ivey is not going to make a run for Congress.

    At a news conference Tuesday evening, Ivey said he will not challenge Donna Edwards for a seat in Congress.

    "After careful thought and consideration, I have decided not to proceed with my candidacy for the 4th Congressional District of Maryland," Ivey said in a statement released Tuesday.

    Sources close to Ivey said he's planning to finish his term as state's attorney and concentrate on his family and personal life.

    "After discussing the personal and financial rigors of the pursuit with my wife, Jolene; my children; and other family members and friends, I have concluded it would be in my best interest to serve the greater community in other ways at this time," Ivey's statement read.
