The chief prosecutor in Prince George's County is considering a run for Congress.

Maryland State's Attorney Glenn Ivey says he is forming an exploratory committee for a possible run against U.S. Representative Donna Edwards in the Democratic primary next year.

Ivey has ruled out a run for a third term as state's attorney.

He's a former Capitol Hill staffer and says it would be an exciting time to return to Washington, with the Democrats in control. He says his major focus would be on education and public safety.

The district includes parts of Prince George's and Montgomery counties.
