Former South Dakota Attorney General announces candidacy for 2022


PIERRE, SD (AP) - Former South Dakota Attorney General Marty Jackley announces he will run again for his old job in 2022.

Jackley's announcement Monday came as current Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg faces calls for his resignation and impeachment for his involvement in a fatal car crash.

The announcement positions Jackley to replace Ravnsborg as he deals with the political crisis from striking and killing a man with his car last year.

Jackley, a Republican, served as the state's attorney general from 2009 to 2019, winning reelection twice. He lost a Republican primary battle to Gov. Kristi Noem in 2018.
