Glenn Ivey, the former state's attorney in Prince George's County, Md., plans to announce a run for Congress in the coming weeks.

Glenn Ivey, the former Maryland state's attorney for Prince George's County, plans to run for the congressional seat currently held by Democratic Representative Donna Edwards, according to the Associated Press.

Ivey will file paperwork within days to run for the newly reconfigured 4th District seat, a spokesman tells AP.

The district still includes much of Prince George's County, but in the statewide redistricting plan approved last week, it was redrawn to include part of Anne Arundel County as well. Parts of Montgomery County that had been in the 4th District, however, were reassigned despite objections from Edwards, who said the new map is not the best approach for minority voters.

Anne Arundel Council member James Benoit, a Democrat, has also said he's considering a run for Edwards' seat.
