Former South Dakota Attorney General Marty Jackley says he will run again for his old job in 2022.
Current Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg faces calls for his resignation and impeachment for his involvement in a fatal car crash.
Jackley’s announcement Monday positions him to replace Ravnsborg, who is dealing with the political crisis from striking and killing a man with his car last year. Both men are Republicans.
Jackley was attorney general from 2009 to 2019, winning reelection twice before entering the GOP primary for governor in 2018, where he lost to Congresswoman Kristi Noem, who went on to win the general election. .
