MD-04:  Glenn Ivey (D)

Campaign Website

Glenn Ivey has served on Capitol Hill as chief counsel to the Senate majority leader, as counsel to Sen. Paul Sarbanes during the Whitewater investigations, chief majority counsel to the Senate Banking Committee, and on the staff of Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich. 

 He also worked for U.S. Attorney Eric Holder as an assistant U. S. attorney, and as chair of Maryland’s Public Service Commission. He was twice elected as state’s attorney for Prince George’s County where he worked with the Obama administration to cut crime.

He served on County Executive Angela Alsobrooks’ Police Reform Taskforce in 2020 as chair of the committee that examined the police department’s internal policies.



Ivey established Ivey & Levetown in 2020, and recently represented a Lafayette Square protestor, arguing that the facial recognition software used to identify him compounds discrimination against dark-skinned people. The Department of Justice threw out the case.

Ivey grew up in Rocky Mount, North Carolina, and the schools of his hometown were still segregated when he started attending. But he watched his mother, a librarian, desegregate four different White schools. He watched his father work for a federal War on Poverty agency that helped unemployed workers in eastern North Carolina get job training and find jobs.


He is running for Congress  to “create good-paying jobs, ensure access to affordable health care and housing, make our criminal justice system more just, and give hard-working Americans the chance to succeed – no matter which zip code they’re from.”
