Glenn Ivey, the state's attorney in Prince George's County, has ruled out challenging incumbent Rep. Donna Edwards (D-Md.) for her seat in Maryland's 4th District.
Ivey says his decision is based on what he calls the "the personal and financial rigors of the pursuit." He says he realized he didn't have the "fire or the belly" for another election.
Ivey plans to return to the private sector when his term ends this year.
"I haven't been courting anything and probably won't," says Ivey. "I've had people reach out. But I don't have anything that's driving this decision."
Ivey says he wants a change and "coach of the Redskins is off the table now anyway."
So we're not going to find out about some public scandal next week? " I certainly hope not. And if you do I hope it doesn't involve me."
Ivey ruled out running for any other elected office this year.
