Glenn Ivey enters his first term as a congressman after a landslide victory against Republican challenger Jeff Warner. This was not his first time that Ivey, a Democrat, ran for the House. He ran in 2012 but dropped out before the primary due to fundraising issues. He tried again in 2016 but lost in the primary. Ivey said he wanted to make a difference in so many communities and now his perseverance has been rewarded. He will represent Maryland’s 4th District, a predominantly Black constituency, which contains parts of Prince George’s County and a sliver of Montgomery County. “There are major challenges that are being addressed one way or another in Congress, and I certainly want to be part of trying to help address those problems and find positive ways to move the country forward,” Ivey said in a recent interview.
