Former South Dakota Attorney General Marty Jackley will again seek that position. It is now held by Jason Ravnsborg, who has been indicted on three misdemeanor charges stemming from an automobile accident near Highmore.
Jackley has announced that State’s Attorneys from 59 counties have endorsed him. They include southeast South Dakota counties Clay, Yankton, Lincoln, Turner, Minnehaha and McCook.
“Marty’s proven experience and record as Attorney General, United States Attorney and as a State’s Attorney is why he has my full support to be our next Attorney General,” Alexis Tracy, former deputy state’s attorney in Union County and present Clay County attorney, commented in a release.
Absent from the list is Jerry Miller, state’s attorney for Union County. Ravnsborg was a part-time, unpaid volunteer in the Union County State’s Attorneys office prior to being elected Attorney General.
Jackley has been in private practice since leaving office. He lost the primary for Governor to current Governor Kristi Noem.
