Ivey will report raising $117K

Glenn Ivey, a Democrat running in Maryland's 4th Congressional District, will report having raised nearly $117,000 in the first quarter of this year, his campaign said Thursday.

The former Prince George's County State's Attorney is the first to disclose his fundraising figures in the 4th District, which is in play because incumbent Rep. Donna Edwards is running for Senate.

Ivey, who won countywide elections in Prince George's in 2002 and 2006, announced his candidacy for the House seat in mid-March.

The Prince George's County-based seat has captured significant interest. The Democratic field also includes former Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown, Del. Joseline A. Peña-Melnyk, and Ingrid M. Turner, a former chair of the Prince George's County Council -- and several others are considering a run.

Ivey's campaign expects to report having about $110,000 on hand, an aide said.

"In just a few weeks since I announced my candidacy, we shattered our fundraising goals thanks to the Marylanders who rallied to join our grassroots driven campaign," Ivey said in a statement.
